HB 5131 and 5132 (Rep. Harvey Santana, D- Detroit) would amend the Brownfield Redevelopment Financing Act and the Economic Development Corporations Act to allow a local BRA or EDC to adopt a rule linking an appointment of a public official to that board to the expiration of that official’s service as a public official, including a resignation or removal from office. This is permissive. These bills passed out of committee last week and passed out of the House yesterday.
