Senate Bill 1111, proposed by Senator Coleman Young (D) of Detroit seeks to bar an eminent domain authority delegation for Emergency Managers.
If Emergency Managers do not have such power, it will be all the more difficult for the Managers to turn around communities.
Either Emergency Managers are delegated the power to turn things around in insolvent communities or not. If not, potentially they should not exist, which would be a true shame.
Senate Bill 1111: To establish that emergency managers do not have eminent domain powers. Introduced by Sen. Coleman Young (D), to establish that emergency managers appointed by the state to manage fiscally failed cities and school districts do not have the power to condemn property and exercise the power eminent domain.
