Sachs: Jocelyn Benson Has Become Synonymous with Service Delays and Outrageous Wait Times, but the Court Refused to Give Her a Pass

LANSING, Mich. – Michigan Freedom Fund Executive Director Tori Sachs provided the following statement today following a decision by the Michigan Supreme Court to deny a request by Democratic Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson and the state’s redistricting commission to extend their constitutional deadline to draw new legislative maps:
“The constitution requires the redistricting commission to provide time for public comment and to produce new maps by November 1. Voters enshrined these requirements in the state’s constitution and they expect results, not excuses. Jocelyn Benson has become synonymous with service delays and outrageous wait times, but the Supreme Court refused to give her a pass. Today’s ruling both upholds the constitution and puts the commission on the clock. It’s time to deliver.”
