Michigan is one of just two states that don’t require elected officials to disclose how much money they earn or where it comes from. That omission makes it difficult to know when public servants are enriching their own families or business partners at taxpayers’ expense.

It also explains why the Center for Public Integrity ranks Michigan 50th out of 50 states when it comes to promoting governmental transparency and accountability.
