Michigan Senate Approves Pay As You Stay (PAYS) legislation

Wayne County Executive Warren C. Evans applauds Michigan Senate's approval of Pay As You Stay (PAYS) legislation to reduce tax foreclosures

"The Pay As You Stay legislation waives interest, penalties and fees to better position low-income residents to stay in their homes. It will provide local leaders with the tools to help residents avoid foreclosure and break the cycle of poverty. I applaud the Legislature's bipartisan effort to move this critical legislation forward. When signed into law, this reform will provide substantial relief to residents struggling to stay current with property tax payment plans and, ultimately, reduce foreclosures in Wayne County." - Warren C. Evans, Wayne County Executive

The PAYS legislation was announced at the Guardian Building by Executive Warren C. Evans, Treasurer Eric Sabree, Mayor Mike Duggan, and Rep. Wendell Byrd (D-Detroit) and other key stakeholders.
