2011 Senate Bill 865

Senate Roll Call 832: Passed

To pass a "shell" version of this bill with no substantive provisions, but which can be modified later to extend the <a href="http://www.michiganvotes.org/2011-SB-157">Emergency Manager law</a> passed earlier in 2011 the event it is suspended in 2012 pending a potential referendum in November. This possibility was triggered by a statewide petition drive reportedly orchestrated by government employee unions unhappy with the power given to emergency managers appointed under that new law to throw out collective bargaining agreements they believe a fiscally failed municipality cannot afford.
