Action in Lansing: Tuesday hearings scheduled on Detroit bills

Beginning with a presentation from Detroit Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr, the Michigan House Committee on Detroit’s Recovery and Michigan’s Future on Tuesday will take up the 10-bill package that proposes appropriating state money toward the city’s pensions.

The money comes with plenty of terms, and no doubt public comments and the legislators themselves will address some of those during the hearings.

Orr is scheduled to speak at 10:30 a.m., followed by the committee’s Chair, Rep. John Walsh (R-Livonia). The committee will hear testimony about the bills beginning at 11:30 a.m. and continuing in the afternoon.

House TV is available online for live streaming of committee meetings.
