Snyder Presents 2016 Budget
Michigan's Governor Rick Snyder presented the 2016 state budget on Wednesday.
The proposed budget is $54 billion, which will be spent on several areas. Snyder would like to focus on skilled trades, education, increasing the reading level for third-grade students and adding more state troopers to the road to "make Michigan a safer place."
- There will be an increase in the per-pupil funding of $75 for K-12 schools.
- To prevent tuition increases of more than 2.8 percent there will be a 2 percent increase in aid to universities in Michigan.
- Dental coverage for families with lower incomes is also part of the 2016 budget.
- 3/4 of the budget will be dedicated to funding education and combining the heath and human services of the state.
