Michigan, a lobbyist paradise: three two-year terms for representatives, and two four-year terms for senators. The article on Michigan’s honor system with no honor refers to lobbying or lobbyists ten times. Term limits would primarily help lobbyists, as the politicians do not have enough experience to know what they are doing while the lobbyists will be showing them the ropes, while paying them to also pull them.
Lobbying firms do not reveal which issues and legislation they advocated for or against. Michigan's money-driven politics serve as a key reason why the state ranks last among the 50 states with a grade of F and a numerical score of 51 out of 100 from the State Integrity Investigation. It received an F in 10 of the 13 categories of government operations that were examined. Its political system has been referred to as "the Wild West ... with no sheriff in town."
