Detroit News Poll Shows Voters Keeping EM Law

A poll released by the Detroit News says if the election were held today, “Michigan’s emergency manager law would survive a referendum.”

Of the likely voters surveyed statewide, the 2011 law giving state-appointed managers broad powers to suspend union contracts would pass by a margin of 53 percent to 33 percent. The fight on Public Act 4 has been taken all the way to the Michigan Supreme Court.

The City of Flint has been under the control of an emergency manager since last December. Michael Brown was emergency manager under PA 4. When the Michigan Board of Canvassers certified petitions to get the referendum on the November ballot, the state reverted back to an earlier version of the law, Public Act 72, and Brown was replaced by Ed Kurtz.

Polls were also conducted on the new International Trade Crossing, a tax authority, union rights and more.
