Mar 25, 2022
Everyone gets something in the massive spending bill Michigan lawmakers in both legislative chambers quickly approved on Thursday.
House and Senate lawmakers raved about the $4.8 billion bipartisan plan, slapping themselves on the back while heralding funding to improve water infrastructure, fix roads and bridges, shore up risky dams, prevent the spread of COVID-19, improve efficiency of the state's beleaguered unemployment agency and more.
"This is an historic moment, an investment in Michigan's infrastructure, for our families ... by successfully working together, we are making a true difference in our state," said Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Jim Stamas, R-Midland.
