State Budget Moving Forward

The Michigan State Senate has started to move the legislation on the 2011-12 budget out of committee and will vote this week on the proposals they put forward.  (Click here for Senate Budget information.)

The Michigan State House will also start moving budget legislation from the committee level to a vote on the floor this week. (Click here for House Budget information.) 

Both proposals will then as early as next week move to Conference Committee where they will work out the differences in the budget plans before final passage.

Once they reach an agreement the approved budget will go to the Governor for his signature.
