STATE BUDGET
(2007-07-26)
(wgvu) - ONE BY ONE, STATE HOUSE LAWMAKERS ARE PASSING VERSIONS OF GOVERNMENT SPENDING BILLS, DESPITE UNCERTAINTY ABOUT HOW MUCH MONEY WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR THE FISCAL YEAR THAT BEGINS IN OCTOBER.
THE HOUSE WEDNESDAY CLEARED BUDGET PLANS FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES AND THE DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY.
THE **SENATE ALSO MUST APPROVE VERSIONS OF SPENDING BILLS FOR THOSE DEPARTMENTS, AND THEN DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE TWO VERSIONS WOULD BE IRONED OUT BEFORE HEADING TO GOVERNOR JENNIFER GRANHOLM FOR FINAL APPROVAL.
LAWMAKERS HAVE NOT YET DECIDED ON THE MIX OF POSSIBLE TAX INCREASES, SPENDING CUTS AND CHANGES IN GOVERNMENT STRUCTURE AIMED AT ERASING A LARGE DEFICIT IN NEXT FISCAL YEAR'S BUDGET.
