2012 House Bill 5688: Authorize municipal streetlight authority (Senate Roll Call 800)
facebook  twitter 

Passed 25 to 13 in the Senate on December 4, 2012, to authorize a Detroit streetlight authority with the power to borrow money to restore the city's streetlights, 70 percent of which are reportedly out. The bill requires passage of House Bill 5705, which would let Detroit earmark current utility tax revenue to pay off the new debt, and Senate Bill 970, which would suspend a required city income tax reduction until the new debt is paid off. It also allows Detroit's city unions to bargain for the unionization of the authority's employees.
