A Michigan House panel approved a higher education budget plan that spends less than Gov. Snyder’s recommendation
Lansing — Five universities would remain below 2011 funding levels under a preliminary college and university budget a House panel approved Thursday that is $9 million below Gov. Rick Snyder’s recommendation.
The budget could change again when the full House and Senate consider it. But the panel’s move signals more resistance from House Republicans who have trimmed millions of dollars from the fellow GOP governor’s proposed budget to prove the state would have enough money to pay for an income tax cut.
Democrats have opposed the move.
