2013 House Bill 4794: Facilitate taxpayer-subsidized metro-region “light rail” creation
  1. Introduced by Rep. Adam Zemke (D) on May 30, 2013, to repeal a requirement that to start a taxpayer-subsidized “light rail” system there must be a unanimous vote by the 10-member board of the Detroit Regional Transit Authority authorized by a 2012 law. Under the bill, a simple majority of the board could establish a mass transit rail system.
    • Referred to the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee on May 30, 2013.
