Michigan Senate passes $1.2 billion spending supplement
The allocation uses money from the federal American Rescue Plan Act and other grants to fund a broad set of COVID-related priorities, including school safety grants.
“I have yet to see a school district that doesn’t have enough money for COVID problems. I mean, you know? They always want more. I get that.”
The supplement also includes spending on areas like healthcare worker retention and epidemiology. It passed both chambers of the Legislature with widespread support. But lawmakers still need to iron out some differences between the House and Senate versions of the bill.
