Detroit Aid to Get Official Start this Week
Posted May 5th, 2014 @ 4:12am by Michigan Radio Network

Ten bills will be introduced in the Michigan Legislature this week, to help Detroit financially with it's ailing pension system.

Detroit Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr made two trips to Lansing last week, and he'll be at the capitol again this week to try and drum up support for the governor's $350 million proposal to help Detroit over 20 years.

There's also growing support for an alternative that would give the city $200 million in one lump sum.

The assistance for the city would also effectively help avoid having to sell off precious art held by the Detroit Institute of Arts.

Lawmakers are not expected to vote on the legislation this week.
