Under the bills, people who receive a second violation for unpaid blight fines could face up to 93 days in jail, a fine up to $500, or both.
People who have outstanding violations would not be able to receive building or zoning permits. Banks and credit unions would be exempt.
Democratic Sen. Virgil Smith of Detroit sponsored one of the bills. He says it would give cities tools to hold blight offenders accountable and helps raises revenue for cities to tear down abandoned buildings.
