I have heard more rumors about proposed cuts in police supplemental pay, some saying that the cuts will amount to $200 per month.
This is not likely. I thought I remembered this being on the ballot a couple of years ago, and it was.
In 2007 state voters approved Act 483 which amended the state constitution to guarantee that supplemental pay can only be cut by a vote of 2/3 of the House and Senate plus the governor’s signature.
The vote was 675,775 (59%) for the amendment and 469,006 (41) against.
I seriously doubt that a vote to cut supplemental pay could pass a simple majority, much less a super-majority of both houses.
