To amend a charter in a general law city, the legislature must pass a public act amending the statute. In order for the legislature to consider a proposed amendment, there must be general agreement (or at least no major disagreements) among most of the cities operating under that charter. If there is not agreement, the legislature is not likely to pass a general law amendment.
