EFM Mike Brown, city statement on MI Supreme Court ruling

Posted: Updated:
FLINT (WJRT) -

(08/03/12) - City says it expects state will provide direction shortly for cities and school districts currently operating under Public Act 4.

This is the statement released on behalf of Emergency Manager Mike Brown:

This afternoon, the Michigan Supreme Court issued an opinion in the case of Stand Up for Democracy v Secretary of State, et a!. The Court ordered that the referendum on Public Act 4 will be placed on the November 6, 2012 general election ballot.

At this point, Public Act 4 remains effective. Public Act 4 will remain effective until the State Board of Canvassers meets and issues an official declaration of sufficiency, thereby certifying the petitions. We expect that to occur within the next week or so.

Once the State Board of Canvassers certifies the petitions, Public Act 4 will be suspended pending the vote on November 6. We anticipate that the Department of Treasury and the Governor's Office will be providing direction shortly for cities and school districts currently operating under PA4.

Importantly, suspension of Public Act 4 does not repeal prior actions taken by the Emergency Manager. The Emergency Manager's resolutions and orders remain effective.
