Switalski on School Budgets
(2007-04-25)
(wgvu) - A top Democratic lawmaker says a potential
cut to Michigan's K-twelve schools that could reach 125 dollars a
student will force Republicans to vote for a tax increase.
Senator Michael Switalski also says legislators are starting to
approve higher spending in the next budget year, which increases
the need for higher taxes.
Switalski says Senate Republicans are starting to talk privately
about needing extra revenue, after they voted for spending
reductions only to learn tax revenue may fall farther short of
projections.
Republicn Senate Majority Leader Mike Bishop was NOT immediately
available for comment.
But earlier today, he said Governor Granholm and Democrats who
control the House need to first agree on a tax increase before he'd
consider one.
