    ... I looked at the MI EMF law a while back and it takes only a little more than a stroke of a pen and some preliminary orders to void union contracts and enact cuts without a vote of the people.

    And yet, (contrary to what I expected) it does allow the EMF to try to raise more revenue.  But THAT takes a vote of the people; all the EMF can do is put the millage vote up for the election.
