A legislative committee on Wednesday approved 11 bankruptcy bills, almost entirely with bipartisan 5-0 votes.
One revision makes room for a city council designee on a nine-member board that would review Detroit's budgeting.
Another change gives the oversight committee dominated by state appointees flexibility to not approve all city contracts above $750,000. Another change forces the oversight board to go dormant if Detroit continually makes sound financial decisions.
The committee's chairman, Republican Rep. John Walsh of Livonia, says he feels good about the committee's work, but "we're going to have our hands full" gaining support in the Republican-led House.
