21. Yes, No, No, Yes, Yes
Prop 1: Yes. Money generated by the parks should be used for the parks. Since the legislature does not have the courage to budget properly by cutting certain things or raising taxes if need be, I believe they need to have their hands tied by the voters. The shell game of using funds in one area to cover for another has to stop.

Prop 2: No. Affirmative action is still needed in Michigan

Prop 3: No. I have no problem with hunting. Doves do not have meat for hunters to feed their families and they are not over populated. Decisions like these need to left to the DNR NOT outside interest groups.

Prop 4: Yes. Eminent domain was meant for the good of all (highways)NOT commercial for profit developers. This should help to stop abuses by commercial developers. It helps to protect individual rights from commercial developers and compensates home owners in the event they are involved an eminent domain situation.

Prop 5: Yes. Education IS the most important expenditure in Michigan's budget. I support tying the hands of the Governor and the legislature. For far to long the government has lacked the COURAGE to do the right thing by properly funding all aspects of public education. The more educated your work force is the more likely companies are to locate in Michigan. With more jobs you will get more tax revenue. The grants I received from the state when I attended U of M have generated more than 25 times their original amount in tax revenues for the state treasury. If my taxes have to go up because of this amendment then so be it! You get what you pay for!
