Updates may be on the way in Detroit’s bankruptcy case as Emergency Manager Kevin Orr is in the state’s capital to pitch budget cutting ideas.

Orr will address lawmakers for two-days to persuade House and Senate Republicans to pass state funding that could settle pension claims for retirees.

Members will vote to funnel $350 million from a fund, proposed by Governor Rick Snyder for the city of Detroit.

If lawmakers agree to free up the money to relieve Detroit from some of its financial woes, the settlement will come as a “grand bargain” to avoid selling Detroit Institute of Arts assets to cover pension expenses.
