LANSING (AP) — Gov. Jennifer Granholm will sign a budget providing state aid to Michigan’s K-12 schools.
Granholm spokeswoman Liz Boyd said Friday the Democratic governor will sign the legislation passed by Michigan lawmakers. The bill cuts funding by the equivalent of $165 per student in the current academic year.
The school deal passed late Thursday is better than the $218 per-student cut that lawmakers rejected last week.
Lawmakers still have not approved a revenue plan to come up with the $100 million needed to allow for the smaller reduction in schools funding.
