Its the same deceptive language for prop 1 in Michigan

Its written in marketing speak...

bla, bla... TO MODERNIZE THE TAX SYSTEM TO HELP SMALL BUSINESSES GROW AND CREATE JOBS

and outright lies:
"Prohibit Authority from increasing taxes".

They are only prohibited during this legislation... this legislation cannot bind the next legislation, therefore the "prohibition" is only really a "temporary limit"

Another lie:
"Prohibit total use tax rate from exceeding existing constitutional 6% limitation"

There is no constitutional limit on use tax, only sales tax. This does not prohibit "total" use tax at all.

Oddly, this is the first time in Michigan that ballot language was written by politicians (bipartisan*), instead of by the Secretary of State.

*bipartisan = grab the jelly & bend over.
