Detroit Mayor Dave Bing says the pace of the city’s recovery is being slowed by delays in Lansing. The mayor says the Legislature is taking too long to create an independent authority to help Detroit and other cities keep their street lights on.
Detroit Mayor Dave Bing told City Council that state revenue sharing likely will be withheld unless a lawsuit challenging Gov. Rick Snyder's consent agreement with the city is dropped.
Governor Rick Snyder says he has not given up on reaching a deal with Detroit elected officials on a legal agreement to fix the city’s finances without a state takeover.
