Governor Whitmer on Michigan’s Historic Budget

Governor Gretchen Whitmer will sign a historic state budget next week.

On Thursday, she visited 9&10 News to talk about the priorities it will fund, and the people it will help.

The new budget adds up to nearly $70 billion dollars in spending, thanks to a surplus and federal covid relief money.

The Governor says if the state spends the money right, it can transform Michigan.

9&10’s Kevin Essebaggers asked her if Michiganders should be concerned that a boom now could mean a bust later.
