STATE SPENDING
(2007-03-14)
(wgvu) - THE STATE SENATE HAS SENT GOVERNOR
GRANHOLM A BILL ALLOCATING ABOUT $240 MILLION DOLLARS IN
SUPPLEMENTAL SPENDING.
THE MOVE WILL LET STATE GOVERNMENT CLOSE THE BOOKS ON THE LAST
BUDGET YEAR IN THE BLACK.
AFTER UNANIMOUSLY APPROVING THE BILL, SENATORS BEGAN A HEATED
DEBATE.
REPUBLICANS SAY GRANHOLM'S ADMINISTRATION SHOULD HAVE ALERTED
THEM OF THE OVERSPENDING EARLIER AND SUGGESTED IT WAS SUPPRESSED
UNTIL AFTER GRANHOLM WON RE-ELECTION.
DEMOCRATS RESPONDED THAT REPUBLICANS HAVE SHOWN NO LEADERSHIP IN
REPLACING THE STATE'S EXPIRING SINGLE BUSINESS TAX, PUTTING AT RISK
MICHIGAN'S CREDIT RATING.
