Mich. Governor Signs Emergency Management Rule

Gov. Rick Snyder signed a new emergency manager bill Thursday, 52 days after voters repealed a similar version of the law.

Snyder spokeswoman Sara Wurfel confirmed the replacement law is among 19 bills Snyder signed into law Thursday.

"These new laws recognize the vital importance of financially stable, economically vibrant communities to Michigan's future," Snyder said in a statement. "They also respect the needs of citizens and taxpayers by delivering greater oversight and efficiency. Our reinvention of government is delivering meaningful reforms that will keep Michigan on the path to prosperity."

The law was not granted immediate effect, so it won't go into effect for 90 days. The Legislature officially adjourned at noon Thursday.
