2011 House Bill 4874: Revise Detroit powers population threshold

To revise the population threshold in a law that allows Detroit to engage in certain borrowing, and allows it to impose “special assessment” property taxes to pay private contractors for snow removal, mosquito abatement, and security services. 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.
