2019 Senate Bill 225: Let Detroit eliminate required city employee insurance copays
Introduced by Sen. Sylvia Santana D-Warrendale on March 14, 2019
To repeal an exception to the 2011 law that required all school employees, and municipal employees with certain exceptions, to contribute at least 20 percent toward the cost of the health insurance benefits, or contribute a specified dollar amount to the cost. The law allowed local governments to avoid complying with a two-thirds vote of their governing body – except for Detroit. This bill would allow Detroit elected officials to exempt city employees from this cost-sharing requirement. This is part of a package comprised of Senate Bills 222 through 226 that would repeal state financial oversight requirements imposed on Detroit's city government and school district as part of state bailouts authorized in 2016 and 2014, respectively.   Official Text and Analysis.
