Michigan: appeals court orders anti-affirmative action initiative on the ballot

AP reports: A Michigan appeals court ordered the secretary of state Tuesday to place on the November ballot a proposal that would ban some affirmative action programs.

The court went over the heads of the Board of State Canvassers, which failed last week to comply with an earlier court order to put the measure on the ballot.

The Michigan Civil Rights Initiative collected about 500,000 voter signatures supporting the measure, which would ban race and gender preferences in university admissions and government hiring. -- Chron.com | Affirmative Action Ban Ordered in Mich.
