Michigan has taken a big step closer to putting money down on the table of Detroit's "grand bargain."

The newly formed House Committee on Detroit's Recovery and Michigan's Future approved an $11 billion package that would see the state send $194.8 million dollars to Detroit. And it would create a panel to oversee city finances for at least 13 years. The aid package now goes to the full House.
