Ballot Proposal 12-1, a referendum on Michigan's Public Act 4 of 2011, also known as
the Emergency Manager Law. This Public Act allows the State to establish criteria to
assess the financial condition of local government units, including school districts and to
put an emergency manager in charge of cities, townships, school districts and counties
that are in financial crisis and require EM to develop financial and operating plans, which
may include modification or termination of contracts or reorganization of government.
