Budget goes to state House

State Rep. Aaron Miller this week voted in favor of the state budget, joining his colleagues on the House Appropriations Committee in approving the fiscal blueprint and sending it to the full House for consideration.
Miller, who serves as chair of the Appropriations Subcommittee on State Police, said local K-12 classrooms will see more money and local governments will see modest increases in revenue sharing and dollars from the Michigan Transportation Fund, enabling them to improve vital services to residents.
Miller said the plan includes funding a $100-per-student increase, putting more state police troopers on the roads, and continuing to pay down debt and save for future hard times.
According to Miller, the sharing payments to local governments will rise by $12.4 million and Michigan’s K-12 public schools would get record funding at $14.3 billion.
