Snyder: Prop 2 And 5 Could Be ‘Economically Devastating’
LANSING (WWJ) - Gov. Rick Snyder says he certainly hopes GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney wins on Tuesday — but the biggest issue facing Michiganders is a slate of ballot proposals.
Speaking live on WWJ Newsradio 950, Gov. Rick Snyder urged Michiganders to vote “Yes” on Proposal 1 and “No” on the other five statewide ballot proposals.
“In particular, if Proposal 2 or Proposal 5 were to win, they could be economically devastating for our state,” said Snyder. “So, I hope people look at these ballot questions, carefully consider them and make sure you vote on that section of the ballot.”

At least 30 million Americans have cast ballots in 34 states, including Michigan, ahead of Tuesday’s General Election.
Snyder said he’s willing to talk about opening up absentee balloting to everyone, no question asked, as Ohio and some other states have done.
“I am concerned with how long the ballot is in various places — particularly since you can have local proposals after all these state ballot questions — so it does get pretty long,” Snyder said.
Snyder said that if Romney fails to win on Tuesday, he believe he can continue to maintain a good rapport with President Obama for the next four years.
“As a practical matter … I respect the President and I think we’ve had a working relationship because we all care about our citizens,” said Snyder. “I view it as customer service government. I wanna give great service to Michiganders, and that involves working with people on the federal level, the local level and all levels of government.”
