Huizenga’s financial disclosure bill signed

LANSING, Mich. — Gov. Gretchen Whitmer on Friday signed Sen. Mark Huizenga’s legislation as part of a bipartisan package designed to implement the financial disclosure measures of Proposal 1 of 2022.

“These financial disclosure requirements are a good step toward a more transparent state government and toward better ensuring elected officials are making decisions for the people of Michigan and not for their own personal benefit,” said Huizenga, R-Walker. “They are also examples of the positive solutions we can achieve when we work together — and I hope to see more bipartisan efforts like this in the new year.”

In November 2022, Michigan voters approved Proposal 1 with over 66% of the vote. The constitutional amendment included language to require statewide officeholders and members of the Legislature to file an annual financial disclosure report with the state.

Senate Bills 613-616 implement Proposal 1’s financial disclosure section by requiring the governor, lieutenant governor, secretary of state, attorney general, members of the Legislature, candidates for those offices and spouses in limited instances to disclose certain financial information every year.
