The Midland County Clerk's office confirmed Monday proposed recall petition language has been filed against Schuette, who is in his first year as the state's attorney general. A clarity hearing on the language is Aug. 1.
An email seeking comment was sent to a Schuette's spokesman.
The Saginaw News says the effort is related to what the recall organizer calls Schuette's "insubordination" of state voters who approved the use of marijuana for medical purposes.
Gov. Rick Snyder, Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville and House Speaker Jase Bolger are among the other Republicans targeted by recall efforts. Reasons include tax changes, cuts to education funding and support of or a revamped emergency manager law.
