What's Ahead in Elections, Inflation, Term Limits?


Five declared Michigan gubernatorial candidates face challenges to positions on the state's August 2022 primary ballot. Michigan's governor and Legislature are debating how to budget $5 billion in revenues and a new ballot proposal makes changes to Michigan's toughest-in-the-nation term limits. This State of the State Podcast tackles tough questions in the summer ahead.

This month's podcast features host Arnold Weinfeld, associate director of Michigan State University's Institute for Public Policy and Social Research, MSU Economist Charles Ballard and guest Rich Studley. Studley is retired Michigan Chamber of Commerce CEO and now a leader of a bipartisan effort to update term limits and to call for the state's first constitutionally mandated financial disclosure for all legislators and elected state officeholders.
