Governor Rick Snyder’s budget proposal calls for more money for schools, universities, and local governments.
The governor presented his budget proposal Wednesday before a joint hearing of the state House and Senate appropriations committees. He says the plan is a frugal budget, but it makes badly needed investments.
“The investments are working that we’ve made over the past few years,” said Snyder. “They’ve been strong investments, good investments, but let’s finish the job we’ve started.”
The governor also called for an election year tax break.
