Miller praises budget

State Rep. Aaron Miller last week praised Gov. Rick Snyder for signing a fiscally responsible budget that increases funding for classrooms and continues to build a solid public-safety foundation.
Miller, chair of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on State Police, said the 2015-2016 budget pays down debt while prioritizing spending for transportation, education and law enforcement.
Miller said the budget, after earlier bipartisan passage in the House and Senate, cuts down on debt while accelerating payments to the teacher retirement fund. He said the School Aid Fund will increase by $140 per pupil in most schools in the 59th House District.
The budget also includes $400 million for roads and bridges, a continued prioritization of money to improve the state’s transportation system.
