Governor Whitmer has proposed a $61.9 Billion budget for Michigan, with education coming up a big winner.
K-12 Classroom spending is set to see it’s largest increase since 2001.
Battling pregnancy related deaths, and climate change, were also key issues.
Giving school districts $25 Million, so teachers may receive $250 for classroom supplies and spending $40 Million to improve infrastructure, were also proposed.
Whitmer said she believed that by leveling the playing field, level outcomes, will become more apparent.
Michigan’s advertising and marketing organization, Pure Michigan, has no funding this fiscal year, although $15 million, was proposed for next year.
