Snyder Makes Statement on Court of Appeals Decision on P.A. 4

Governor Rick Snyder issued a statement in response to a Michigan Court of Appeals decision on a ballot measure challenging Public Act 4:

“We are pleased that this panel followed the letter of the Michigan Election Law and stayed the effects of its ruling so that PA 4 remains in effect. We are hopeful that if a special panel is convened that it is done promptly and that a majority of its judges agree with the unanimous interpretation of this panel.”

“It is important to understand that removing an emergency manager or stopping the emergency manager process under PA 4 does not eliminate the true financial emergency that exists in these seven communities and school districts. Providing them with the tools they need to get back on sound financial footing to provide effective services to their residents, parents and students must remain a top priority.”

“We are gratified that the Court of Appeals panel agrees that our interpretation of the law is correct and that the W.Bloomfield case was wrongly decided.”
