DETROIT (WKZO) -- Four senior officials from the Obama administration will be in Detroit next week to meet with city and state leaders to discuss the city's bankruptcy filing.

Attorney General Eric Holder, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan, Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx, and White House National Economic Council director Gene Sperling will be in Detroit next Friday.  The group is expected to meet with Governor Rick Sndyer, Detroit Mayor Dave Bing and others to continue discussions on how to help the city use federal resources to speed bankruptcy restructuring.

Federal officials have ruled out a financial bailout or legislation to deal with Detroit's Chapter 9 filing.
