LANSING — The Consensus Revenue Estimating Conference signaled anemic growth is anticipated in the General Fund and School Aid Fund in the coming fiscal year. In response, House Democratic Leader Sam Singh (D-East Lansing) issued the following statement:

 

“The Consensus Revenue Estimating Committee figures show that it is  time to reinvest in Michigan, but we have to do it wisely. Too many families in our state are still struggling to get ahead, which is why we have to put them first when we put together the state’s budget. We need a Michigan where small businesses thrive, where families and seniors aren’t left behind, where kids can get a great education no matter which school they attend and where everyone can afford to get the health care they need. State spending that doesn’t focus on these priorities is spending we can’t afford.”
