State Budget Update: Battle continues

The fight to ensure Michigan invests in its future continues a day after the state House rejected devastating public education cuts recommended by a House-Senate panel.
Now, lawmakers are expected to re-examine school funding, a battle that could drag on until mid-October; schools are due to receive their first state aid payment of the school year on Oct. 20.

MEA members are urged to continue legislative contacts – phone calls, e-mails, text messages, and other communications have helped fend off deep cuts so far. Lawmakers need to hear from you, the hard-working education professionals on the front line.
