Whitmer To Seek Funding From GOP

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer will seek funding for a variety of budget priorities…

This comes after the Governor slashed nearly $1 billion from a spending plan that had been approved without her input. Whitmer plans to seek a supplemental budget bill for various departments and initiatives, including prisons, reading coaches and a tuition-free program for nontraditional college students. Some say it’s possible that request could fall on deaf ears, after recent vetoes and an ongoing impasse with GOP legislators over how to fund repairs for Michigan’s badly crumbling roads.
