Michigan Senate passes legislation dissolving two school districts

LANSING (WKZO) -- The Buena Vista and Inkster Public School districts are close to going away for good.

The state Senate passed legislation Thursday to dissolve the financially troubled districts, though Senator Roger Kahn of Saginaw crossed party lines and voted against the bills along with Democrats.  Democrat Bert Johnson of Detroit filibustered by the bills for more than an hour, and cited the closing of schools in Chicago among the reasons he opposed the bills.

The House has to concur with the changes made by the Senate before the bills are sent to Governor Snyder.
