Passed 35 to 2 in the Senate on November 10, 2010, to allow counties to create an arts authority with the power to impose a property tax of up to .2 mils for up to 20 years, with the money going to subsidize art museums. A vote of the people would be required to impose the tax. The bill opens the door to an Oakland, Macomb and Wayne County arts tax to subsidize the Detroit Institute of Arts.
