Michigan's controversial statue, Public Act #4 will be on the ballot for State Voters to affirm or deny Tuesday, November 6th.

The Michigan Supreme Court, in a ruling issued this afternoon, found that the issue raised by the "Citizens for Fiscal Responsibly" organization that font size printed on the petitions was invalid per Bureaus of Election Guidelines had no merit.

Justice Mary Beth Kelly wrote the opinion for the majority ruling in favor of allowing a vote on Public Act #4 on the ballot.
“A majority of this court holds that plaintiff is entitled to a new writ of mandamus requiring the Board of State Canvassers to certify its petition as sufficient,” Justice Mary Beth Kelly wrote. The type size used met the state requirement,"  Bloomberg Week reported.
Public Act #4, known widely as the "Emergency Manager Law" was signed by Republican Governor Rick Snyder on March 16, 2011. The measure allows for state governmental authorities to appoint a "Financial Manager" to operate all aspects of a city, township, village or school district operations, if the Department of Treasury head Andy Dillon, Governor Rick Snyder and board appointed by Dillon and Snyder approves the action.

Emergency Managers exist in Michigan cities Pontiac, Flint, Benton Harbor all with large minority populations; along with public school districts of Detroit, M
uskegon Heights, Highland Park and Benton Harbor.

If the law is nullified by Michigan voters  November 6th, the statue would be immediately suspended, pending any continuing legal proceedings. It's expected that groups who waged a long battle to keep Public Act #4 off of the ballot after over 223,000 registered voters signatures was submitted February 9th to have a up or down vote on the statue, will not stop their battle to keep Public Act #4 as law in Michigan.
