Whitmer: Budget makes record investments in students, public health, and infrastructure

Even after signing next year’s $76 billion state budget that makes record investments in education and public health, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer says there is more work to be done to give Michiganders, and the state’s business community, what they need as the pandemic wears on and inflation strikes close to home.

Last month, Whitmer signed the budget into law, largely backing the plan the GOP-led Legislature approved.

Negotiators met behind the scenes for weeks to develop the budget proposal and announced a deal in late June. But they couldn’t agree on how to cut taxes, which is still possible thanks to a $7 billion budget surplus thanks to a flood of federal money and anticipated higher tax revenue.

State officials estimate that extra revenue is available to account for any tax deal that leaders can produce.
