Bipartisan investments build on last year’s transformative state budget, innovative approach to tackling the needs of all Michiganders 

LANSING, Mich. (June 27, 2024) — Today, the Michigan Legislature passed a strong, bipartisan state budget for the 2025 Fiscal Year designed to build up Michigan and the communities we live, work, and grow in. During the appropriations process, Sen. Veronica Klinefelt (D-Eastpointe) played a vital role in securing targeted, meaningful investments for both the residents of Senate District 11 and communities across Michigan.

“While state revenues may fluctuate from year to year, my commitment to supporting families across District 11 has never wavered,” said Sen. Klinefelt. “Included in this year’s budget are funds for practical yet transformative projects that will help us address long-standing issues and build up our region. By strengthening local infrastructure, we can make our roads safer, water cleaner, and communities more resilient.” 

The funding Sen. Klinefelt secured for her district includes:

  • $8 million for the 38th District Court to construct a new courthouse and police station; 
  • $6.6 million for the Roseville pump station and local roadway rehabilitation; 
  • $4 million for road repairs in the Fraser Industrial Park; 
  • $3 million for Macomb Township to improve the safety of the intersection at 21 Mile Road and Heydenreich Road; 
  • $3 million for the reconstruction of 10 Mile Road in Eastpointe to improve road safety for motorists; and 
  • $700,000 for the Clintondale Community School District to bolster school security, ensuring a safe learning environment for all students.
