STATE BUDGET
(2007-02-08)
(wgvu) - GOVERNOR GRANHOLM IS ROLLING OUT A BUDGET PROPOSAL THAT PUTS A TWO PERCENT SALES TAX ON MOST SERVICES AND REPLACES THE SINGLE BUSINESS TAX.
THE PLAN ALSO MAKES AROUND $400 MILLION DOLLARS IN CUTS.
SOME REPUBLICANS HAVE CRITICIZED HER TAX PROPOSALS AND WANT TO SEE MORE SPENDING CUTS.
GRANHOLM SAYS MICHIGAN CAN'T CONTINUE TO DISINVEST IN CRITICAL SERVICES IF IT IS TO COMPETE. THE STATE FACES GAPING HOLES IN THE BUDGETS FOR THIS YEAR AND NEXT.
GRANHOLM SAYS THE CHANGES ARE NEEDED TO ALLOW THE STATE TO INVEST IN EDUCATION AND WORKER TRAINING PROGRAMS, AS WELL AS IN
SAFETY NET PROGRAMS FOR THE POOR.
