Lt. Governor Brian Calley promoted his proposal to turn Michigan's legislative branch into a Part Time Legislature during a visit to Traverse City Friday morning.
Calley also took questions from media outlets before going door-to-door to collect signatures in Northern Michigan.
The Lt. Governor is widely expected to run for Governor, but says there's plenty of time to worry about 2018 later, right now the constitutional amendment has his full attention.
Calley says that limiting the legislative session to 90 consecutive days will force Lansing politicians to prioritize legislation and pass fewer unneeded laws.
Calley also believes legislators need to spend more time back home living under the laws they pass.
Calley's proposal cuts legislator pay in half, making their pay on par for what a teacher would receive for the same amount of work.
A recent poll from Mitchell Research and Communications shows nearly 80% of likely Republican primary voters support Calley's proposal. Nearly 2/3 say the plan makes him a more attractive choice for Governor.
