Statement from House Democratic Leader Tim Greimel on the decision by Judge Rhodes to declare Detroit eligible for bankruptcy

Tuesday, December 3, 2013

“The success of Michigan depends on the success of Detroit, and I look forward to supporting the city restructuring in a way that leads to sustainable prosperity. However, I disagree with the judge allowing innocent retirees to pay to protect Wall Street bond holders, and I hope he lives up to his promise to only approve a plan of adjustment that is fair and equitable.”
