Snyder to approve the expansion of Medicaid eligibility under the Affordable Care Act to provide more Michigan residents with mental health care coverage.

DETROIT, Feb 19 (Reuters) - A review team appointed by Michigan Governor Rick Snyder to scour Detroit's finances will recommend an emergency financial manager, City Council President Charles Pugh said on Tuesday.

"They are recommending an emergency manager. That's what (Michigan Treasurer) Andy Dillon said," Pugh told city council members during a meeting. Dillon is a member of the review team.

The review team is scheduled to announce its recommendations at a press conference later on Tuesday in Detroit.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of the headline, "Detroit Emergency Manager To Be Recommended For City: Council President Charles Pugh," was unclear and incorrectly suggested that Pugh had been recommended as EM (he was not). The headline was revised to add the word "says."
