(DETROIT) - A new survey shows that Michigan voters support the state's emergency manager law. According to a survey conducted by Detroit television station WDIV and the Detroit News, 53% of Michigan voters support keeping the law while just 33% do not. The emergency manager law, Public Act 4, allows Governor Rick Snyder the ability to intervene with financially strapped cities and appoint an emergency manager with the power to break collective bargaining agreements, fire elected officials and privatize or sell public assets.
