2012 Senate Bill 909: Create Detroit regional mass transit authority

Passed 22 to 16 in the Senate on November 27, 2012.
    See Who Voted "Yes" and Who Voted "No".
To create a new Detroit area regional transportation authority covering Macomb, Oakland, and Wayne counties, and potentially others. Among other powers the authority could levy property taxes (special assessments) and higher local vehicle registration taxes if approved by a majority of voters in the region, meaning a particular community could not “opt out” of the tax increase. The authority would be specifically authorized to create “rolling rapid transit” corridors along some streets and highways, potentially with dedicated lanes that other motorists could not use. It would be run by a board appointed by the counties and the City of Detroit.
