Michigan high court hears emergency manager law case

The Michigan Supreme Court is mulling over arguments heard Wednesday concerning the controversial emergency financial manager law.

Opponents of the law want it on the ballot by November, including folks who live in Benton Harbor.

Joseph Harris is the manager there. Earlier this year, the group called Stand Up For Democracy collected and submitted over 200,000 petition signatures challenging the law, but they were ruled invalid because of the font size.

It is not clear when the Supreme Court will make a decision on the case, but the ballot language must be finalized by September 7 in order to be placed on the November ballot.

The law would allow the state to overrule local elected officials and union contracts.
