Bills to Allow LDFAs and CIAs to Terminate Membership on Board with Official’s Public Office Term Passe Senate

Posted on June 9, 2014 by nbrown

SB 739 and 740 (Sen. Virgil Smith, D- Detroit) passed the Senate last week. These bills would amend the Local Development and Financing Act (LDFA) and the Corridor Improvement Authority(CIA) Act to allow an LDFA or CIA 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 now move onto the House Commerce Committee and are similar to a pair of bills dealing with Economic Development Corporations and Brownfield Redevelopment Authorities.
