Board to consider minimum wage, wolf ballot issues

Posted: Updated:
LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan's elections board will consider whether supporters of a minimum wage increase and wolf hunting collected enough voter signatures for proposals to advance to legislators and possibly a statewide vote.

The Board of State Canvassers meets Thursday. State staffers say the groups each gathered the minimum signatures required.

But a restaurant-backed organization is challenging signatures submitted for the wage proposal. It says it's moot because lawmakers repealed the law that would be amended and passed a smaller minimum wage hike with bipartisan support.

Supporters, however, still want their wage proposal on the November ballot.

Hunting opponents have forced two referendums this fall on whether to repeal laws that could allow wolf hunting. But if legislators first OK a pro-hunting measure expected to be certified Thursday, the referendums will be moot.
