2012 House Bill 6060: Give county officials power to halt recall as "non-factual"

Passed 22 to 16 in the Senate on December 13, 2012 To reduce the time citizens have to collect signatures on a politician recall petition from 90 days to 60 days. Also, to require county election commissions to determine whether the reasons for a recall petition are stated both "factually and clearly." Under current law, they must simply determine whether the recall language is clear. Note: This may violate Article 8, Section 8 of Michigan's constitution, which asserts that recallers don't have to justify their reasons, but only make them clear.
