The Michigan Secretary of State's office confirmed Monday evening that a deadline has passed without any public challenge to more than 315,000 signatures turned in last month by Right to Life of Michigan.
The Bureau of Elections analyzed a sample and concluded that at an estimated 299,941 signatures are valid, far more than the 258,088 needed to advance the measure.
The Board of State Canvassers is expected to meet next Monday to consider the petitions. Certification would send the proposal to the Legislature, which would have up to 40 days to vote it into law or allow voters to decide on the 2014 statewide ballot.
