House OKs bill for Detroit Institute of Arts
A bill approved today in the state House would allow the Detroit Institute of Arts to ask taxpayers for more money. The Associated Press reports the bill would:
...allow counties to form authorities that could ask voters for property taxes to fund arts institutes... The property taxes would have to be approved by voters in the region to take effect. Art institute authorities could ask for up to 0.2 mills.
The bill now heads to Governor Granholm for her signature. The state Senate already approved the measure.
