Education Budget
(wgvu) - The Michigan House has started voting on
how much money to spend on education in the budget year that starts
in October, although it's not yet clear if there will be enough tax
revenue to pay for the proposals.
The House on Thursday approved an average funding increase of 3
percent for Michigan's community colleges, with variations
depending on how many students at each college qualify for a
tuition waiver for Indian students.
The Democrat-led House has not yet voted on spending proposals
for Michigan's universities and K-12 schools.
The Republican-led Senate has passed different versions of the
spending bills.
Compromises must be found, and Gov. Jennifer Granholm must sign
off on them, before the next spending plan becomes official.
