Governor Snyder applauds Detroit bankruptcy decision

LANSING (WKZO) -- Michigan Governor Rick Snyder praised the decision by U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Steven Rhodes permitting the City of Detroit to file Chapter 9 bankruptcy protection.

The governor said the ruling means the city can stay on the path to a brighter future.  He also said asking the emergency manager to seek bankruptcy protection was a difficult decision but was the best viable option.

Snyder also recognized that Detroit is already making a comeback with much revitalization downtown and the midtown areas, and says the focus can now expand to make neighborhoods strong.
