Whereas, in 1945, the Detroit Board of Commerce promoted the extension of

        amount contributed in Wayne County, Michigan;
Whereas, in 1969, the Detroit Board of Commerce, then known as the Greater 
        Detroit Chamber of Commerce, was instrumental in the establishment of a

        Authority, now known as SMART;
