2019 House Bill 4123: Expand reach of “blight” liens
Introduced by Rep. Karen Whitsett D-Detroit on February 5, 2019
To allow a local government to foreclose on property owned by a person who has failed to pay fines imposed by “administrative hearing bureaus” that most cities are allowed to create for enforcing "blight violations" outside of regular courts under a 2003 law. Under that law, cities already have the power to place a lien against the blighted property, and this bill would also allow liens against any other property the person owns in this state.   Official Text and Analysis.
