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. Mike McFall (D-Hazel Park) issued the following statement:

“The economic growth of our state is centered on investing in main streets, improving our infrastructure, and supporting public safety statewide. Notably, our district is receiving funding that will allow for overdue replacements to the Madison Heights Police Department’s HVAC system and allow the Hazel Park Library to install a new elevator system. Investments from our budget will also create the MI Secure Retirement for Small Business initiative, lending a hand to Michigan entrepreneurs and business owners. That is what this budget is about — making our communities thrive. It’s our job to provide opportunities and support to our people so our state remains strong.”
