The Michigan Supreme Court has heard arguments about whether it should order four questions onto the Nov. 6 ballot.

The court took appeals from supporters of plans to strengthen collective bargaining rights, allow eight more casinos, require a two-thirds vote in the Legislature to raise taxes, and block a planned bridge to Canada. There were no immediate decisions Thursday.

The State Board of Canvassers has deadlocked on a series of votes to place voter initiatives on the ballot. The board has two Democrats and two Republicans, and it requires at least one member of each party to vote in favor of a resolution for it to pass.

The board Democrats voted to place the four issues on the ballot. There were no Republican votes for any of them.
