Abstract

This report presents the opinions of Michigan’s local government leaders regarding the state’s emergency manager law, officially called the Local Government and School District Fiscal Accountability Act (Public Act 4 of 2011). This law provides for the appointment of emergency managers to oversee local governments and school districts in fiscal distress. The findings in this report are based on statewide surveys of local government leaders in the Spring 2012 wave of the Michigan Public Policy Survey (MPPS).
