2013 House Bill 4344: Revise special Detroit powers population threshold (Senate Roll Call 378)

Passed 36 to 1 in the Senate on September 26, 2013, to revise the population threshold in a law that gives Detroit the power to define a fire arson investigator as a police officer. The Michigan constitution prohibits passing “local acts” with less than a two-thirds majority vote in the House and Senate, so the legislature has circumvented this by granting certain privileges or exemptions to “a city with a population greater than 1 million,” later revised to 900,000, and then 750,000. This bill changes that to 600,000. Also, to establish that the Detroit Chief of Police is automatically deemed to be a state certified peace officer, and extend certification to an person employed as a police officer in another state within the past year if that state has certification standards substantially the same as Michigan's, to establish that the Detroit Chief of Police is automatically deemed to be a state certified peace officer, and extend certification to an person employed as a police officer in another state within the past year if that state has certification standards substantially the same as Michigan's.
