Our communities deserve safe roads, clean water, and quality public schools—but for too long, corporate lobbyists have stood in the way of the progress Michiganders deserve. Michigan has some of the worst transparency and ethics rankings in the country. A big part of the problem is that corporate lobbyists have too much power in influencing our state elected officials, so our priorities fall by the wayside.
The Coalition to Close Lansing Loopholes is committed to closing loopholes in our laws that allow lobbyist money and influence to control the direction of our state government. We can fix our broken lobbying laws and ensure our elected officials work for the people, not corporate lobbyists. We must align Michigan’s lobbying laws with the rest of the country to ensure there’s transparency and accountability in state government.
