Michigan Senate Passes Nearly $60 Billion Budget Plan

The Michigan Senate passed a nearly $60 billion budget plan.

When it comes to road and education money, there are big differences between their plan and the governor’s.

Senate Republicans and Democrats agreed on many of the bills, but split on spending billions more on roads, and how to divvy up funding for K-12 schools.

It did not include Whitmer’s proposed 45-cent-a-gallon fuel tax hike.

Budget talks could linger into the summer.

The House could vote on its budget plan within weeks.
