SHOTLIST:ABC Pool - AP Clients OnlyLansing, Michigan - January 22, 20141. SOUNDBITE: (English) Gov. Rick Snyder, (R) Michigan:"We've had a lot of positive discussions, so I'm here today to recommend we move forward with being part of a settlement. In terms of what does that mean? I'm looking to make an investment of up to $350 million dollars over a period of 20 years, to join with the Foundation money to help resolve the bankruptcy case."2. SOUNDBITE: (English) Gov. Rick Snyder, (R) Michigan"This is a settlement, this is not a bailout. And I want to be very, very clear about that. This is not a bailout of paying the debts of Detroit, this is not a bailout of dollars for Detroit's debts. This is not a bailout of banks and other creditors. This is focused in on helping reduce and mitigate the impact on retirees. It's focused on protecting assets. It's focused on showing good results and moving forward and hopefully resolving this case in a more positive rather than a more negative way faster and better. 3. SOUNDBITE: (English) Gov. Rick Snyder, (R) Michigan"Because this is really about settling it so we can grow Detroit. The point is a chapter that none of us wish we had to live through. But it's after 60 years of negative things going on. It had to be done."STORYLINE: Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder announced a plan on Wednesday to commit $350 million in state funds to help shore up Detroit's pension funds and prevent valuable city-owned art from being sold during the debt-ridden city's bankruptcy.The Republican joined legislative leaders in outlining a proposal that would provide the money over 20 years. They acknowledged it may be a hard sell in the GOP-controlled Legislature, but said it was better than a protracted legal fight in a city facing an estimated $18 billion in debt.The governor was quick to say the money wouldn't be a bailout, but rather a way to help Detroit settle its bankruptcy quickly and allow it to grow.The money would match the roughly $330 million that local and national charitable foundations have pledged so far to help the insolvent city, including protecting valuable works at the Detroit Institute of Arts that could be sold as part of the bankruptcy.Before Wednesday, Snyder hadn't talked much publicly about any potential state aid to Detroit, partly because discussions between the city and its creditors with federal mediators are private.Snyder had privately gauged support among lawmakers last week for the plan _ and he's facing politically tricky terrain.Some legislators are worried that state financial assistance to Detroit could set a precedent if other cities collapse, while others have their own spending priorities elsewhere in the state. Election-year politicking also could come into play.
