first_img More funding for schools, public services in plan 27Apr Rep. Miller: Local residents will benefit from budget Categories: Miller News,Miller Photos,Newscenter_img State Rep. Aaron Miller today voted in favor of the state budget, joining his colleagues on the House Appropriations Committee in approving the fiscal blueprint and sending it to the full House for consideration.Miller, of Sturgis, who serves as chair of the Appropriations Subcommittee on State Police, said local K-12 classrooms will see more money and local governments will see modest increases in revenue sharing and dollars from the Michigan Transportation Fund, enabling them to improve vital services to residents.“As a teacher, I am disappointed the House budget does not continue to give extra to our schools, which are all at the lowest per-pupil funding in the state. However, I am extremely pleased that we are at least funding a $100-per-student increase, taking steps to ensure our children are prepared for a global workforce,” Miller said. “And not only does this budget put more state police troopers on the roads throughout Michigan, but this budget continues to pay down debt and save for future hard times, something I’m proud of.”Highlights of the bill:Helping make life better in communities across Michigan by adding money for road repairs, public safety departments, parks and other programs to improve our daily lives. Revenue sharing payments to local governments will rise by $12.4 million under our plan, more money than in the past five years.Michigan’s K-12 public schools would get record funding at $14.3 billion, with a priority on keeping more money in the classroom to benefit students. School districts across the state would get $100 more per student at each grade level, equating to a $143 million increase.Funding for career and technical training would increase through competitive grants for equipment upgrades and for intermediate school districts to hire counselors. The programs are designed to help prepare Michigan students for jobs of the future.Building a better economic future by paying down school retiree debt and adding to the state’s main savings account for tough times, pushing the emergency fund above $1 billion.Continuing to tighten our belt by eliminating waste and inefficiency in state government.Our goal is to spend less state money in the next budget year than we are today, and we achieved that with a 2.2 percent reduction in the general state budget.#####last_img read more
