LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Gov. Rick Snyder has met with the Legislature's top Republicans and Democrats on a multi-hundred-million-dollar plan to protect Detroit pensioners and the holdings of the Detroit Institute of Arts as the city moves through bankruptcy proceedings.
Democratic House Minority Leader Tim Greimel of Auburn Hills tells the Detroit Free Press (http://on.freep.com/1fXBL00 ) that they met with Snyder on Tuesday. Greimel says announcement might come this week.
He says the other participants were Republican House Speak Jase Bolger of Marshall, Republican Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville of Monroe and Democratic Senate Minority Leader Gretchen Whitmer of East Lansing.
Snyder has been seeking support for a state commitment of $350 million over 20 years, matching commitments from foundations to shore up Detroit's pension plans and prevent the sale of city-owned art.
