Headline Goes Here istock

LANSING, Mich. - The Michigan Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on the state's emergency manager law on Wednesday.

The group known as Rainbow Push will try again to get the issue on the November election ballot.

Supporters and opponents will both have time to argue their case. However, arguments will revolve around whether the font size on the group's petitions was the size required by the state.

Public Act 4 or the emergency manager law was signed into law by Governor Rick Snyder back in 2011 and sparked protests statewide. The law allows the governor to appoint people to run the finances of financially troubled cities and school districts.
