Eley Suggests Michigan Constitution Needs Revision

t ...


A suggestion that Michigan take
a "bold, new look" at its constitu-
tion was offered by a University
expert yesterday as he spoke to
the public corporation law section
of the State Bar meeting in Grand
Lynn W. Eley, supervisor of the
Lansing office of the listitute of
public administration, said con-
stitutional revision should express
faith in the ability of voters "to
enforce governmental responsibil-
ity where power and responsibility
are centered.".
Clear-cut means should be set
for both the legislature and the
governor in carrying out their
functions,, he added.
Improve Policy Making
New ways to improve policy-
making by the legislature include:
1) increased salaries, especially
for the president of the Senate
and for the speaker of the House;'
2) election of Senators for four-

Twelve members of the Univer-
sity's Michigan-Memorial Phoenix
Project's governing board recently
visited the atomic energy facili-
ties at' Oak Ridge, Tenn.
They also held a business meet-
ing to study the future financing
of the project, which is dedicated
to .finding peacetime uses of
atomic energy.

year, staggered terms; and 3)
provision of improved legislative
research facilities and a legisla-
tive post-auditor.
Eley pointed out that the duties
of the auditor would be to check
the general performance and op-
eration of the laws by various ex-
ecutive agencies, in addition to
the task of examining agency's fi-
4nanlcial status.
n Revision of the constitution
would give the legislature power
to use whatever kinds of taxes it
wishes, subject only to the poli-
tical control desired by the people
and the restraints of the federal
Give More Discretion
The legislature should be given
more discretion over state revenue
spending 'and should also be able
to review the "earmarking" of
funds, Eley said. At the present
time, he commented, two-thirds
of the state's income is earmarked
for specific purposes and is out-
side . the legislature's control.;
Present constitutional provision
proves to be unduly restrictive
where financial powers of local
governments are concerned, he
said. An effort -to ease' "the
strait-jacket effect of the 15-mill
amendment and to improve the
adininistrative machine'y con-
nected ' with property taxation,"
should be made, he said.
Local units, cited 3ley, parti-
cularly cities and villages, need
to have the power to adopt types
of taxes other. than the property-

tax-possibly a municipal income
tax-at their own discretion. An-
other problem which might be
considered by the constitutional
convention is that of local debt
control, he added.
Pattern Powers
On the state level, the powers
of the governor should be pat-
terned after those of the Presi-
dency, Eley said. The governor,
under the present constitution,
may have to contend with such
things as partisan opponents
within the executive branch.

might be the motto of the two
otters who took up housekeeping

Valued at $350 apiece, acquisi-
tion of the small mammals is the
result of the efforts of Irving Rei-
mann, director of the Natural
History Museum. "We waited
seven years to get these animals,"
he said.

Also his authority over person-
nel management is weak and he
lacks power to dismiss members
of nearly all executive positions,
boards and commissions for policy
reasons, Eley added.
"By limiting the governor's
term to two years,the constitu-
tion has given him precious little
with which to counter the "willful
men" who frequently sit on
boards and commissions for as
many as eight years."
Impede Central Direction.
The legislature has approved
123 organizations, a "monstrous
impediment to central direction
and control" noted Eley, creating
new problems because the present
constitution fails to prescribe a
general pattern for assigning ex-
ecutive functions.
"The executive article of the
donstitution desperately needs re-
vising to end the situation in
which entrenched minorities, in
most cases without direct respon-
sibility to the people, are fre-
quently able to thwart the ac-
complishment of a popular man-
date," he said.
Even though the governor is ac-
countable to the people for the
results, he definitely is denied the
authority and the tools that are
necessary to achieve these results,
Eley commented. When people
change governors for policy rea-
sons, various agencies and offi-
cials are still in the position to
ignore or challenge the new gov-
