STATE BUDGET-LEFTOVER BUSINESS
(2007-10-02)
(wgvu) - A MICHIGAN'S STATE GOVERNMENT IS OPERATING
UNDER A 30-DAY TEMPORARY BUDGET.
SEVERAL DETAILS WILL HAVE TO BE WORKED OUT IN THE NEXT MONTH SO
THE BUDGET CAN BECOME PERMANENT AND RUN THROUGH THE REST OF THE
FISCAL YEAR THAT STARTED TODAY.
THE STATE'S INCOME TAX WILL BE RAISED AND THE SALES TAX WILL BE
EXPANDED TO COVER SOME SERVICES. BUT MORE THAN 400 MILLION DOLLARS
IN CUTS OR SCRAPPED SPENDING PLANS MAY STILL BE NEEDED TO BALANCE
THE BUDGET.
UNIVERSITIES AND K-THROUGH-12 SCHOOLS MIGHT GET ROUGHLY THE SAME
AMOUNT OF MONEY FROM THE STATE THIS FISCAL YEAR AS LAST FISCAL
YEAR.
EDUCATORS WILL TRY TO CONVINCE STATE LAWMAKERS THEY DESERVE MORE
MONEY THAN THAT.
