General Session: Both Sides of the Ballot
This November, Michigan voters will decide the fate of Public Act 4— commonly called the Emergency Manager Act of 2011. In fact, we could see several proposals on the November ballot that could have significant impacts on local governments. Is the Michigan Constitution under attack? Are your rights being threatened or preserved? With so much at stake, this important new general session will have speakers give the pros and cons of ballot proposals that could impact local government.
