Upcoming Community Conversation
It is not too late to join my first live community conversation. This virtual event starts tonight, Thursday, Feb. 18, at 6 p.m. I will give a brief update on the committees I serve on, the Supplemental funding bills, the Governor’s Executive Budget Recommendation, an update from our local United Way, and some time for a Q&A so I can hear from you.
I hope to see you there!
Legislative Update – Executive Budget Recommendation
Last week, Governor Whitmer presented her FY2022 executive budget recommendations. The highlights that she focused on dealt with getting Michigan back to work, getting our kids back in school, expanding skills training, protecting our Great Lakes, addressing this public health crisis, and more.
This recommendation offers many strategic one-time investments that will help us through this time and keep our next budget in balance. If you would like more details on this funding, please read the State Budget Office’s complete overview by clicking here.
