LANSING — Sen. Sean McCann has issued the following statement after the Michigan Senate passed a supplemental budget that includes funding for workforce development programs, PFAS remediation efforts and other items:
“From speaking with many constituents over the past few months, it was clear that a supplemental budget was needed to fund many important programs in Kalamazoo County and in Michigan. I’m happy to see many of the priorities I have fought for are included in the bill, including funding for important skills training programs like Michigan Reconnect and GoingPro, which will help workers and employers in Southwest Michigan succeed.
“Kalamazoo County families will also benefit from funding for PFAS remediation efforts in Parchment, as well as funding for the Resiliency Center for Families and Children at Western Michigan University’s Unified Clinics. With this important funding secured, I look forward to working with Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and my colleagues in the legislature on funding other important budget priorities for our district.”
