LANSING, Mich. — Michigan lawmakers have passed a $62.7 billion spending plan about a week before the deadline to enact the next budget.
Bills were made public Wednesday and quickly won final approval before going to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.
Thanks to a federal coronavirus bailout, spending will generally stay flat.
Schools will see a slight boost in funding.
The governor and lawmakers also agreed to fund tuition assistance for adults to go to community college, give school support staff a $250 payment for working in the pandemic, and make nearly 6,000 more children eligible for child care subsidies.
