Default Local Government and School District Accountability Act

Anyone talk about this yet? Everything (to me anyway) makes sense until the part about adding suspension power over a government while the "managers" implement fixes.

The "pros" section of the bill states:
"Second, proponents of these six bills argue that in some instances some local governments have not been well-managed. Instead, local elected leaders have overlooked alarming levels of fraud and abuse. Then, when the state has appointed an emergency financial manager under Public Act 72 of 1990, those local officials have interfered to make the emergency manager's reform efforts extraordinarily difficult, and sometimes impossible. These bills would enable the emergency managers appointed by the state to suspend the power of locally elected and appointed officials, if those officials are not cooperative."

So it looks like a reaction based on previous efforts wasted. Even if it's necessary it seems to me like an overstep in power, but I'm no expert on our style of democracy.

The full bill.
