LANSING, Mich., June 28, 2024 — The Michigan Legislature passed the final state budget for the 2025 fiscal year ahead of the legally required July 1 deadline. Democratic leaders crafted a budget focused on strategic, targeted investments that improve the lives of people and hometowns across Michigan without raising taxes. After the vote, state Rep. Tyrone Carter (D-Detroit) issued the following statement:

“This budget season we focused on making local investments, which for our community means bringing more dollars back home to our Detroit neighborhoods. We’re investing in public safety to make sure our communities are protected, empowering Michiganders to live and enjoy wherever they live, work, worship and foster their family and social connections. We are moving Michigan forward with policies that help make life easier. It’s that simple  — we’re putting money back into hometowns where the people need it most.”
