LANSING, Mich., Sept. 22, 2021 — Today, the Michigan House of Representatives passed a budget that includes historic investments in the economy, child care, education and infrastructure. It will also invest $80,000 in Clawson to add a crosswalk signal on Main Street and $300,000 in funding for an I-75 sound wall study in Troy.

“This budget shows just what we can achieve when we work across the aisle to create essential and transformational changes for every single person in our state,” said State Rep. Padma Kuppa (D-Troy). “With increased revenue sharing, the budget will directly help our local government fund and invest in areas most in need, and will make significant investments in child care and education to support Michiganders and their families.

“As a legislator, I take our district’s funding needs seriously, and while no budget is perfect, I am thrilled to see that both Clawson and Troy will receive funding that I have been championing since taking office in 2019, to improve local revenue sharing and invest in our infrastructure. I will continue working with state officials and local municipalities as the Troy sound wall study is conducted to identify and implement necessary improvements to protect public welfare, safety, and constituents’ quality of life.”
