STATE BUDGET
(2007-05-23)
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Senate Majority Leader Mike Bishop says he
would discuss several reforms to cut government costs.
That includes a part-time Legislature.
The Rochester Republican says he has been frustrated by parts of
the ongoing budget talks but sees "good progress."
Bishop does not want a tax increase as part of a settlement for
this fiscal year's projected 800 (m) million dollar deficit. But he
says revenue increases could be part of the discussion for next
year along with reforms.
House Democrats have continued to work on bills that some
Republicans want passed to streamline government and save taxpayer
cash. That could be key to getting some G-O-P support for
Democrat-favored tax increases.
Several bills could come up for votes in the House as early as
today.
