Local Michigan Governments to get Smaller Increase in State Revenue Money

Michigan’s local governments may be getting less state money than they hoped.

Governor Rick Snyder proposed a 15% increase in revenue sharing.

But House Republicans say a budget agreement includes just a 5.5% boost in statutory revenue for cities, townships and villages.

$8 million may also go toward financially troubled local governments.

Municipalities are expected to get 3% boost next year guaranteed under the Michigan constitution.
