LANSING, Mich., Sept. 22, 2021 — The Michigan House of Representatives passed a budget that includes historic investments in health care, child care and infrastructure. Included in the budget is $300,000 to public safety personnel in Farmington Hills to provide police crisis intervention training, $100,000 to replace a fire prevention trailer and $36,000 to Farmington Hills City Hall to upgrade its infrastructure to include electric vehicles charging stations. The Holocaust Memorial Center in Farmington Hills will also receive $500,000 to continue providing its critical programming. State Rep. Samantha Steckloff (D-Farmington Hills) issued the following statement in support of the budget’s passage:

“I am proud of the investments this year’s budget has made — especially for the Farmington Hills community. Ensuring all police officers are properly trained on crisis intervention will keep our first responders and members of the community safe. I am also pleased that City Hall will be able to install electric vehicle charging stations. This is a positive way to embrace the car industry as it changes to become better for the environment. The budget came a long way from what was originally proposed in the spring and shows the good we can do when we put party politics aside and focus on the people.”
