LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan appeals court says it will not take a second look at a decision that gives voters a chance to overturn the state's emergency manager law.
The decision means the referendum is headed to the fall ballot unless the Michigan Supreme Court intervenes.
Critics of the proposal had challenged the petitions because of the size of the print. A three-judge panel at the appeals court said the issue should go on the ballot. But the panel also had invited the full court to take a look. The court declined Thursday.
The manger law would be suspended if the referendum survives legal challenges and goes on the ballot.
Managers are running Benton Harbor, Flint, Pontiac and Ecorse, as well as schools in Detroit, Highland Park and Muskegon Heights.
