The Michigan Constitution Podcast

Tony Snyder is a licensed attorney in the State of Michigan who offers a bi-monthly podcast on the Michigan Constitution. Here you will learn about each Article and its respective Sections, what they mean, and case law that has addressed how those provision are implemented in the day-to-day lives of citizens of Michigan.


episode 21: Podcast 21: Article 1, Section 8 Quartering Soldiers

So here’s the thing about Article 1, Section 8…there is no case history, at least not that I could find. And frankly, I find that to be a good thing! We don’t want the State of Michigan forcing citizens to house soldiers, within the person’s home, against their will. So instead, I’m going to give you a little history on this provision, within Michigan, but I’m also going to give you a little history on the United State Constitution’s Third Amendment. It’s the 3rd Amendment upon which our Article 1, Section 8 is based.
