Senate Roll Call 479 on
2013 House Bill 4704: Restrict legal challenges to county budget

Passed 29 to 8 in the Senate on October 31, 2013.
    See Who Voted "Yes" and Who Voted "No".
To restrict legal challenges to the spending levels in a county’s annual budget, establishing that only "an elected official heading a branch of county government" and the chief judge of a court funded by a county have standing to bring such a challenge in court. Also, to establish that the state Court of Appeals is the only venue for such suits, and establish a legal presumption that the amount appropriated is sufficient. This relates to a recent challenge by the Wayne County Prosecutor over the amount of money the county board appropriated for that office.
