Pscholka Praises Detroit Aid Vote



The Michigan House has started approving parts of Detroit bankruptcy legislation committing $195 million in state money to help prevent deeper cuts in retiree pensions and the sale of city-owned art. State Representative Al Pscholka was a "yes" vote.

Listen:



The House approved an 11-bill package Thursday to provide the money to Detroit under strict oversight. One of the bills is upsetting the Detroit Institute of Arts, as it prohibits the renewal of a property tax millage in southeast Michigan that brings in $23 million a year for the museum. Democrats say the museum bill denies voters the right to decide to fund the museum, but the Republican sponsor says taxpayers deserve relief if they're giving money to Detroit.
