Michigan House panel OKs state money for Detroit bankruptcy plan
May 21 (Reuters) - A special Michigan House committee on Wednesday approved a nearly $195 million state contribution for a key element of Detroit's plan to adjust its $18 billion of debt and exit the biggest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history.
Legislation appropriating the money from Michigan's rainy day fund was part of an 11-bill package the committee approved and sent to the full House for consideration. (Reporting By Karen Pierog; Editing by Chris Reese)
