So glad to have this report and hope that our State Legislators take it to heart. Citizens across Michigan want their voices to be heard and want special interests OUT of the sphere of influence.

The problem I see with the basic assumption with this study is that is that it presupposes a great deal of public confidence in government being the primary solution to any and every problem faced by Michigan citizens. Some, roads for instance, I can buy, others... schools , not so much. An interesting addition would be be, Do you believe that government action is the key to to solving the subject problem? Then the responses might be more interesting.
