Mayor Duggan Welcomes the Lansing Legislation

Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan is celebrating state lawmakers passing a series of bills designed to help the city emerge from bankruptcy. Members of the state House approved nearly $200 million to help shore-up Detroit’s pension system – and prevent the sale of works from the Detroit Institute of Arts. But the funding, which must still be approved by the state Senate, comes with strings attached, including an oversight committee watching Detroit’s spending. WDET’s Quinn Klinefelter talked with Duggan about the measures.
