Mich. voters get say on emergency manager law

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — The Michigan Supreme Court says a referendum on the state's emergency manager law will appear on the November ballot.

Republican Justice Mary Beth Kelly provided the crucial vote for Friday's decision, joining three Democratic justices.

The court ruling means voters will decide whether to keep or kill a law that sends powerful emergency managers into distressed communities and school districts to fix their finances.
