Bill To Give More Power To Emergency Financial Managers Passes

by
The Michigan Senate Chamber
The Michigan Senate Chamber

(Lansing, MI)  --  After days of debate and protests, the State Senate passes a bill to give more power to emergency financial managers appointed to cities or school districts.  The 26-to-12 vote, which followed party lines, will allow emergency managers to cancel workers union contracts.  Democrats have said passing the bill would undermine collective bargaining in the affected communities or schools, while Republicans contend the legislation would help target municipalities or districts before their financial problems reach critical levels.  The bill heads back to the House, which passed the measure in February, for approval to minor changes.
