Re: E-M:/ Fw: Michigan legislature

I think that you all make valid points. The question of a part-time vs. full-time legislature speaks to the larger issue of michigan government reform. The state needs to re-examine its antiquated and complex system of operating and delivering services to counties, cities, villages and townships.

Rather than turn our legislators into part -timers, how 'bout requiring that they are in their offices or on official business a minimum amount of days (like 250) and cannot miss any votes? CANNOT MISS ANY VOTES! (without a Drs Excuse)  No "I had a once in a lifetime vacation opportunity" excuses.
Also..when they leave, poof, insurance etc is gone, just like any other job. One week paid vacation, 6 six days.  Thats it.
