Michigan lawmakers one step closer to avoiding referendum on wolf hunt

Apr 25, 2013

The Michigan Senate has approved legislation that could circumvent a referendum on wolf hunting.

The bill would give a state commission the authority to name the wolf, or almost any other species, as a game species.

That's separate from the wolf-hunting law that is the target of a referendum drive. That referendum would appear on the November 2014 ballot once petitions signed by 250,000 voters are certified by a state elections board.
