The Michigan Supreme Court will not remove an anti-affirmative action measure from Novembers’ statewide ballot. The court rejected a request that it reconsider an earlier decision which sent the measure to Michigan voters.
The proposed amendment would ban government and university admissions programs from basing preference on race, gender, color, ethnicity or national origin.
Those opposed to the amendment say voter signatures on petitions were collected through misrepresentation. The ruling means voters will decide the issue in November.
