LANSING (WKZO) -- There can be no Emergency Manager Law in Michigan since the Board of Canvassers certified petitions and placed the issue on the November ballot.

That is the claim of two groups who say Governor Rick Snyder and Attorney General Bill Schuette cannot claim the state's original Emergency Manager law is in effect.  The Sugar Law Center and the Center for Constitutional Rights have filed a lawsuit arguing the original law is dead.

Currently, Emergency Managers are overseeing operations in Benton Harbor, Flint, Pontiac, and Ecorse.  The school districts in Detroit, Highland Park and Muskegon Heights are also under the direction of emergency managers.
