Pro-voting rights groups are suing to try to strike down a 2018 law they argue makes it harder to gather signatures for a citizen petition drive.
Lonnie Scott is head of Progress Michigan. The group supports an initiative to limit the political influence of lobbyists, and another initiative to change Michigan’s Freedom of Information Act to include the Legislature and governor.
Another group that's suing wants to require public disclosure of donations to political campaigns. The Michigan League of Women Voters has also joined the lawsuit as a plaintiff.
