State Rep. Aaron Miller recently voted for a state budget that reins in government spending and pays down debt, while investing in public-safety measures to better protect taxpayers and their families.
Miller, who chairs the House Appropriations Subcommittee on State Police, said statewide trooper strength will be at its highest level in 18 years.
He said the state is training 155 new troopers, which will go a long way in helping to make Michigan communities safer, Miller said.
He said the budget also invests in more laboratory equipment for the state police, which will provide the tools necessary to quicken investigations and remove criminals from local communities, Miller said.
House Bill 5579 and Senate Bill 848 advance to the governor for his consideration.
