LANSING, Mich., July 10, 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. Donovan McKinney (D-Detroit) issued the following statement:

“The allocation of resources for local investments in infrastructure across the state is a significant win for Michigan, particularly in areas that have been hardest hit by historic disinvestment and environmental hazards. With $74.5 million dedicated to critical infrastructure, these investments will significantly enhance the quality of air, land and health for people across Michigan. These projects will upgrade water systems, modernize transportation networks and increase the resilience of our communities against environmental challenges, paving the way for a more sustainable and prosperous Michigan.”
