I Want YOUR Opinion!

Important!

Should the Legislature Override the Governor on HB 4116?

 

BACKGROUND: HB 4116 is the bill that addresses the lack of transparency of Memorandums of Understanding (MOU) are legally binding, written documents entered into by officials in state government agencies with other parties with “uncertain statutory basis” or any central oversight, in a every increasing manner. Think of MOUs as a type of “shadow government.”

 

  • The bill would allow research organizations and citizens the ability to track these MOUs
  • The bill had not a SINGLE ‘no vote’ in the House or Senate..All yes votes
  • Full Support of the AGs office

Are we a nation of laws, as established by an elected legislature, or are we a nation of contracts written on the back of cocktail napkins by unelected bureaucrats?

We support the Legislative Override to make this Bill law. But I want to hear from YOU!

If you believe as we do then:

1. Just pick the “Yes” option in the Survey HERE and then

2. Contact your Rep saying “I support the Legislative *override of HB 4116

If the Governor vetoes a bill while the Legislature is in session or recess, one of the following actions may occur:

*The Legislature may override the veto by a two-thirds vote of the members elected to and serving in each house. The bill then becomes law.

    Yes, this should clearly be over-ridden, and it is shocking that it got vetoed in the first place. Are there older agreements that they don’t want us to see, or are there future agreements they are concerned would get derailed if the public knew about them? Considering how much executive power has increased, these just seem like another way to attempt to bypass the legislature.

      You hit the nail on the head Pete….If you veto a transparency bill ..What are you trying to hide?

    STUNINING AS TO WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTIONAL “REPUBLIC”

    PLEASE UNDERSTAND WE CONSTANTLY ARE TOLD THROUGH THE MEDIA AND UNINFORMED CITIZENS THAT THE USA IS A “DEMOCRACY.” ….. BY DEFINITION THIS IS NOT TRUE.

    A “DEMOCRACY” IS “MOB RULE” BY A SMALL GROUP OF POLITICANS OVER THE MAJORITY OF CITIZENS !

    I FIRST SAW HOW THESE SO CALLED LEGAL “ARRANGEMENT” TECHNIQUES OPERATED BACK IN THE EARLY 1990S WHILE WORKING IN DC WITH NAFTA AND GATT SO CALLED TRADE “AGREEMENTS” !!!

    SINCE THEN 46 THOUSAND COMPANIES HAVE LEFT THE USA TO SET UP SHOP OFF SHORE AND UTILIZE WHAT AMOUNTS TO SLAVE LABOR TO MANUFACTURE GOODS AND PRODUCTS PURCHASED BY US CONsumers !

    OUR FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE UTILIZED THE SAME POLITICAL SUBVERSION AGREEMENT WITH THEN GOVERNOR GRANHOLM.; TECHNOLOGY ‘SYSTEMS” WE USE FOR PRISON INMATES,,,,
    [ RFID ] IS EMBEDDED IN OUR MICHIGAN DRIVERS LICENSE!

    OF COURSE THIS SURVELLIANCE TECHNOLOGY IS ONLY “OPTIONAL” FOR NOW !!

    “FLICK OF THE PEN LAW OF THE TERRI LAND” …DID ANYONE READ THE ORIGINAL 2005 BILL FROM CONGRESS ?

    WE AS MICHIGAN CITIZENS MUST BECOME AWARE AND KNOWLEDGEABLE OF THE POLITICAL TECHNIQUES UTILIZED BY POLITICANS WHO ARE IMPLEMENTING GLOBAL INITIATIVES !
    ie “AGENDA 21″ PLESE DO THE HOME WORK !

    WAIT UNTIL YOU ACTUALLY SEE WHAT THAT DRIC BRIDGE IS UTILIZED FOR !
    STUDY THE “NORTH AMERICAN UNION” !!!!!

    THE FOUNDING FATHERS SAID “WE GIVE YOU A REPUBLIC IF YOU CAN KEEP IT !!
    THANK GOD FOR STATESMAN WITH GUTS LIKE STATE REP. PAUL OPSOMMER !
