Republicans Demand Budget Promise from Whitmer

The budget impasse continues in Lansing.

Crucial programs for schools, law enforcement, hospitals and other issues remain unfunded following the line item vetoes issued by Governor Getchen Whitmer and the transfers made by the state administrative board.

That’s State Representative Greg Markkanen, who says there’s a palpable lack of trust between legislative leaders and the governor. Still… if they can get past that hurdle…

Whitmer was the first governor to use the ad board to rearrange a budget, and she says she’s not prepared to restrict its authority.

Markkanen was a guest on Sunday’s Copper Country Today. Listen to the podcast here.
