There are bills quickly making their way through the Legislature that would drastically increase the powers of Emergency Financial Managers. In addition to wiping out elected school boards and city councils, voiding all contracts including collective bargaining agreements, and having complete academic control, this legislation provides the Emergency Financial Manager with the power to take “any other actions considered necessary … to achieve the objectives of [their] plan.” These actions must remain in place for three years after the EFM leaves and, by the way, the EFM cannot be challenged in court for anything s/he does. Please click here to send a letter to your State Senator and Representative asking them to vote NO on HB 4214 and related EFM bills.
