Michigan Senate Approves Budget Bills

We have a budget update out of Lansing.

Communities and public universities would get 2 percent more in state money for the next fiscal year under budget bills that passed the Senate Thursday.

The catch?  The bills leave out Governor Rick Snyder’s request for additional money for infrastructure and Flint emergency reserve funds.

Democrats and some Republicans opposed a higher education plan that would give 15 public universities an overall 1.8 percent funding increase, which is below what the governor wants.
