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. Veronica Paiz (D-Harper Woods) issued the following statement:

“I am especially happy to bring home funding to our communities. I was able to ensure that funding goes to the East Warren Development Corp. for community revitalization. With these funds, we will be able to support and enhance the E. Warren commercial corridor and adjacent neighborhoods, attracting more businesses and making it more accessible for the community. Not only that, but I was also able to bring home funding for Arts & Scraps, an organization that provides reused materials and educational resources to promote sustainability and creativity in Detroit. I was able to secure funding to support their community projects and educational STEAM programming. With these budget wins, great things are happening for our communities.”
