Michigan approved plans to expand Medicaid coverage in 2014 to adults with incomes up to 133% of the federal poverty level (approximately $15,500 for a single adult in 2014).[2]

In 2018, the state electorate passed proposals to create an independent redistricting commission,[3] and to legalize the recreational use of marijuana.[4][5][6]

In 2020, voters approved two ballot measures, one to increase the limit of money from sales of gas and oil from state-owned land that can benefit state parks, and another to require a warrant for search or seizure of electronic data and communications.[7][8]
