A Michigan state lawmaker representing Detroit introduced a bill that would establish a bond-issuing regional mass transit authority for his region.

Democratic Rep. Bert Johnson’s bill, introduced Dec. 18, would set up an authority to oversee a new bus and rail service that would run throughout Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb Counties as well as Detroit. The authority would have the ability to levy a tax, if approved by voters, and issue bonds to finance the system.
