A group of unnamed developers operating under the title “Citizens for More Michigan Jobs” obtained approval from the Michigan Board of State Canvassers on April 3, 2012, as to the form of a petition to amend Michigan’s constitution to permit the establishment of eight new land-based commercial casinos. The proposal would authorize the eight new casinos on specifically described real estate in communities across Michigan’s Lower Peninsula. Citizens for More Michigan Jobs has not disclosed all the owners of the real estate parcels described in the proposed constitutional amendment. The proponents must obtain at least 322,609 valid signatures by July 9 in order to have the constitutional amendment proposal placed on the November general election ballot. The proposed constitutional amendment also lifts restrictions currently placed on the state’s lottery operations.
