No More Detroit Bailouts

May 01, 2014

State lawmakers are considering a proposal to send $195 million in state funds to Detroit. Tell your lawmaker: More money is not the answer! No more bailouts for Detroit.

Michigan has rewritten its laws many times to give Detroit special treatment and more financial assistance. But all this help has encouraged rather than corrected bad behavior.

In 2010, Detroit’s per-capita state revenue sharing payments were 2x and 3x the payments received by other cities such as Grand Rapids, Battle Creek and Lansing. Yet, corrupt and irresponsible Detroit officials still mismanaged their way into bankruptcy.

Write your legislator now and make your voice heard!
