Michigan's governor is declaring a state of financial emergency in Detroit. Governor Rick Snyder will appoint an emergency manager to address a 327-million dollar deficit.

Snyder's office published a brochure defending state intervention as a way to efficiently reform finances in the cash-strapped city.
