Senator Brinks on Passage of Budget in Michigan Senate

LANSING, Mich. — Sen. Winnie Brinks (D-Grand Rapids) has issued the following statement regarding the passage of the budget for the upcoming Fiscal Year 2020-21:

“I am pleased to support a budget that keeps its focus on people in need. It has been a challenging year for our residents’ budgets and our state budget, and it’s important that we do what we can to assist those who are struggling. I am particularly proud that we were able to achieve an increase in per pupil funding; increased direct care worker wages; funding for programs improving the health of families from pregnancy through childhood; and, an allocation for the United Methodist Community House in my district to continue serving Grand Rapidians for generations to come.

“I am also grateful to those who brought forth this bipartisan budget agreement, and I hope this spirit continues in the legislature. Michigan’s residents need us to step up for them right now, and the work reflected in this budget is a great example of what we can do when we put people ahead of partisan politics.”
