Leaders of Michigan cities seek more revenue sharing

Mar 18, 2013

Since 2000, Michigan's state government has cut a total of $4.2 billion of revenue sharing with municipalities.   With lawmakers at work on the next state budget, and with a modest surplus projected, advocates for Michigan’s cities and towns are pleading for an increase in revenue.  This afternoon, many of those advocates will meet at the Lansing office of the Michigan Municipal League to make some noise.

Dan Gilmartin, president of the Michigan Municipal League, along with David Lossing, mayor of Linden in Genesee County, discuss the revenue debacle facing municipalities.
