A new Michigan bill that aims to protect taxpayers’ money from fraud and abuse will go before voters on Tuesday.
The bill would require that the state’s government audits be made using an auditor’s own software rather than using the vendor’s system.
The measure is a major development in the fight against money laundering, and it will likely be a popular vote issue.
Michigan has been grappling with money laundering for years.
The state’s auditor and police agencies have said they have seen a surge in money laundering incidents and money laundering cases in recent years.
The bills main sponsors, Rep. Mike Ditka and Rep. James Dickey, both Democrats, said in a statement that the legislation “protects taxpayer dollars from fraudsters and criminals.”
Ditka said the bill will be used to stop fraud and misuse of government funds.
The bill would also create an independent body to oversee the state government.
The independent body would include representatives from the Michigan Department of State and Public Works, the Michigan Commission on Audit, and the Michigan Board of Public Works.
The legislature is considering several other bills this session.
The House is scheduled to take up a bill on public health this week.
