Michigan State Legislators have a budget surplus this year

by

LANSING (WKZO) -- Members of the Michigan Senate Fiscal Agency say the state has an estimated one-point-three billion dollars more than it had last year to spend, thanks to higher than expected tax revenue.

Senate leader Jase Bolger of Marshall wants a tax break.

Others want to spend it on roads or schools. The governor will reveal his plans later this month or early next.

Kalamazoo City Commissioner would like to see a little of that money come their way, given that they have seen their revenue sharing from lansing cut dramatically, and the fact that they are having to trim jobs and programs to balance this year’s budget.

They will consider their spending plan for 2014 at their meeting Monday night.
