Executive Office,

Lansing, April 19, 1911.
To the President of the Senate:

Sir:-1 herewith return with my objections the following act:
Senate bill No. 339 (fil No. 334, enrolled No. 44), entitled

An act to amend section 10 of Act No. 136 of the Public Acts of 1909,
entitled "An act to provide one additional judge in the judicial circuit
in which the county of Ingham is, or may be situated, being now the
thirtieth judicial circuit."

In my opinion the above entitled measure is for two reasons in direct contravention of section 30 of article 5 of the Constitution, which is as follows:

"The Legislature shall pass no local or special act in any case where a general act can be made applicable and whether a general act can be made applicable shall be a judicial question. No local or special act shall effect until approved by a majority of the electors voting thereon in the district to be affected."

This provision of the Constitution of 1908 was aimed to prevent the confusion in our laws which would arise from the passage of acts of this pature. This measure, affecting as it does, the judicial district composed exclusively of Ingham county, is in my estimate, local in its character although amending a general act. Inasmuch as no referendum is provided by the act it also contravenes the same section of the constitution

which provides that local or special acts shall not take effect until approved by a majority of the electors in the district to be affected.

Very respectfully,
CHASE S. OSBORN,

Governor.
