LANSING, Mich. (AP) — The Republican-led Legislature has passed legislation that would restore more than half of the proposed spending that was vetoed by Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.
The votes are a sign that Michigan’s budget impasse may soon end. The Senate and House approved bills Wednesday to reverse some of Whitmer’s line-item vetoes and fund transfers.
Negotiations continue on curbing the powers of the State Administrative Board. Both sides are optimistic a final deal could be reached next week.
