5 of 6 Michigan proposals fail, 1 is still in question

Posted: Updated:
(WJBK) -

A lot has been made about the 6 proposal that made the ballot  for Michigan's general elections but in the end a billionaire gets rebuked and unions may have a harder time setting up shop.

The so-called 'Bridge' proposal underwritten by Manuel "Matty" Moroun went down in flames with 62-precet saying no thanks.

The other proposal Moroun's supported was proposal 5 and it also was voted down, and ironically by more than a 2/3 majority.  If you voted you get that joke.

Collective bargaining proponents can collect their hats at the door on the way out of a loss of two proposals, 2 and 4.

The renewable energy mandate is out as proposal 5 didn't have enough of the power of the people to support it.

The Emergency Manager proposal is too close to call as the votes in the city of Detroit continue to get counted.  We'll update this story when we have the numbers.
