Michigan’s state budget is a document that outlines our priorities and our collective efforts to create a pathway toward economic opportunity for all.
The League believes that Michigan’s future prosperity depends on a state budget that supports public structures and investments in education, health, safety and its people.
It’s important that citizens speak up and tell lawmakers their priorities. The League is here to help. Please watch our Budget Briefs series (below, on this page) and sign up for our news, budget updates and action alerts, and we’ll keep you posted.
