that county lines be followed in
setting up districts, Prof. Thomas
explained.
On the basis of the 1960 cen-
sus, the largest representative
district wlil be Monroe County
(101,120) and the smallest dis-
trict Van Buren County (48,305).
Permissible Range
Nevertheless, only 20 of the
state's 115 counties would fall
outside the permissible 15 per cent
range of deviation from the aver-
age district size. The five largest
counties (Genessee, Kent, Ma-
comb, Oakland and Wayne) would
vary only from 93-105 per cent,
and hence wouldn't be disadvant-
aged in the House, he continued.
An extremely controversial area
in this article is the apportion-
ment commission, which would
redistrict both houses every 10
years
This provision has been attack-
ed because its membership would
be chosen regidnally: two each
from the upper peninsula, north-
ern lower peninsula, and south-
western and southeastern Michi-
gan. Normally, Democrats and
Republicans would split, the eight
seats.
Prof. Thomas saw some merit
to this plan as "it provides for
guaranteed decennial reappor-
tionment by a bipartisan body
created solely for that purpose."
The commission would be obli-
gated to act, for if it didn't, the
state supreme court would then
step in to do the job itself, he
pointed out.
Civil Rights
Except f a r a "regrettable"
search and seizure clause, Prof.
Greenberg finds that this section
"takes away no traditional safe-
guards and strengthens those that
exist."
The search and seizure provi-
sion parallels present Michigan
standards which permit outside-
the-home seizure of narcotics and
dangerous weapons without a
search warrant.
Recent decisions of the United
States Supreme Court imply that
the state's provisions conflict with
the 14th Amendment "due pro-
cess," but the Con-Con delegates
in effect left the matter up to
the courts for a final ruling, Prof.
Greenberg reported.
Steps Forward
Offsetting this are four "not-
able steps forward:"
1) "A convicted person may ap-
peal his case as a matter of right,
a right which is not available
under current Michigan practice;"
2) Legislative and executive in-
vestigations would have to provide
"fair and just treatment" to wit-
r esses - b o t h individuals and
groups;
3) "A very strong equal pro-
tection" clause is placed in 'the
Declaration of Rights to ensure
non-discriminatory treatment in
employment and public accommo-
dation, and the Legislature is di-
rected to irplement such protec-
tion;
4) A Civil Rights Commission
(Mchinan would be the only state
in the union to have such a pro-
vision in its constitution) would
I - set up to secure equal treat-
ment by wielding investigatory
authority, including power of sub-
poena.
Under Attack
This clause has been under at
tack from "liberal" groups be-
cause it fails to ske fy areas of
concern such as housing and em-
ployment, but Prof. Greenberg
believes that the state's legal
commitment to action has been
clearly demonstrated through past
legislation.
It is possible that a discrimin-
atory group could appeal to a ju-
diciary hostile to the commission
(in a process called "trial de
novo") to forestall corrective

PROF. DANIAL R. FUSFELD
... 'disappointed'

of the document," Prof. Fusfeld
and Mrs. Pealy wrote.
A "needlessly restrictive and
rigid" short-term borrowing pro-
vision for state government re-
quires that the loans be repaid
within the fiscal year. Since state
tax revenues fluctuate along with
the business cycle, a long-term
recession would hamper borrow-
ing policy, opening the way to
damaging fiscal crises.
Another clause would seriously
undermine the local tax base by,
in effect, lowering the assessment
ratio from 50 to 30 per cent of
property value.
Income Tax
Prohibition of a graduated in-'
come tax could bring about flat
rate levies, which bear more heav-
ily on low income than high in-
come families. Similarly, chances
for regressive taxes are furtner
enhanced by allowing a sales tax
of any amount on wholesalers, a
fee which would be passed on to
consumers.
Finally, earmarking for high-
way, local government and school
funds is continued, thus" absolv-
ing the Legislature of the (ap-
propriating) responsibility which
is historically theirs," Prof. FLs-
feld and Mrs. Pealy declared.
The only progress made was
some clarification of financial
language and greater flexibility
in "managing the state's current
and long r a n g e obligations
through a sounder system of debt
management."
Highways
Prof. Waugh was "keenly dis-
appointed" in this section's han-
dling of the highway commission,
although the constitution prob-
ably won't generate any "earth-
quaking changes" in Michigan's
roads system.
The commission conceivably
could be burdened by the Legis-
lature with an overload of non-
highway duties. However, ear-
marking of highway funds would
find "a little more latitude" in
direction of expenditure under
the proposed constitution.
Judiciary
Three good points and three
defects were spotted in this article
by Prof. Spaeth, but "the defects
outweigh the improvements."
Establishment of a court of ap-
peals would relieve the state su-
preme court of an overload of
cases; prohibiting the fee system
of salaries for justices of the
'peace removes this particular
"venality"; a more unified court
system would deliver t the su-
preme court greater supermiend-
ing power over lower courts.
On the debit side, outstate
Michigan would be over-repre-
sented in the purportedly state-
wide court of appeals by a dis-
trict basis of nominating judges;
denying the governor authority to
fill judicial vacancies and throw-
ing them open to nonpartisan
election would "give an over-
whelming advantage to a candi-
date with a good political name
regardless of his qualifications."
Finally, omission of the word
"statewide" from the clause deal-
ing with elections of supreme
court judges unfortunately might
allow the district plan of election
to appear, Prof. Spaeth said.
Local Government
T h e proposed constitution
would strengthen the- powers of
cities and villages' to deal with
municipal concerns, Prof. Brom-
age remarked.

...'stronger powers'
action, but, on the other hand,
minority groups who are not satis-
fied with a commission ruling
could appeal to a circuit court.
Thus, this provision is "a two-
edged sword."
Prof. Greenberg pointed out,
though, that the commission's
scope of protection and authority
depend to some extent upon the
Legislature, which could alter the
group's procedural rules at any
time.
Executive Department
This is one of the milder sec-
tions of the document, as most
patterns of executive organiza-
tion "develop either from legisla-
tion or executive action irrespec-
tive of the constitution," Prof.
Friedman wrete.
Ideally, a department should be
headed by an individual appoint-
ed by the governor in order to
fix responsibility. However, the
proposed document leaves the
Administrative Board in some-
what of a "hodgepodge" in this
respect, as the state superintend-
ent of public instruction, high-
way director and auditor general
would be chosen by functional
boards, not by the governor or
the electorate.
Another regressive stand in
Prof. Friedman's opinion was the
requirement for a balanced budget
and spending cutba-ks in case
revenues fall short of appropria-
tions. These terms would deter
a strong, responsible executive
and violate sound fiscal practice
by curtailing expenditures during
a recession.
Suspend Rules
Also, allowing the Legislature
to suspend department rules dur-
ing intercessions might serve "to
negate decisions of a responsible
administrative agency."-
But these agencies would "take
an enormous step forward" by
being consolidated into a limit if
20 principal departments (right
now there are 1:~).
Two other new benefits would'
be lengthening the governor's
term to four years and giving the
Legislature only 60 days to ap-
prove or reject gubernatorial ap-
pointees.
As a whole, this article is "one
of the most disappointing parts
