The Senate version of the Fiscal Year (FY) 2003-2004 Department of Career Development and the Michigan Strategic Fund budgets. (Note: Gov. Jennifer Granholm’s proposed budget for this department is Senate Bill 309 .) This appropriates $566.4 million in adjusted gross spending (funded from all sources, including special state restricted fund and federal pass-through dollars, minus interdepartmental transfers), compared to $605.9 million, which was the FY 2002-2003 amount enrolled in 2002, excluding any supplemental appropriations, line-item vetoes, or later cuts. Of this, $55.3 million will come from the General Fund (funded by actual state tax revenues), compared to the FY 2002-2003 amount enrolled in 2002 of $64.5 million. Among other changes, the budget reduces Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) funding by $4 million more than the $36 million cut the governor proposed.

Amendment offered by Rep. Marc Shulman (R) on June 17, 2003
To insert $10 million for a grant to create a life sciences research and commercialization center in the Kalamazoo area, intended to keep in the area 75 to 100 scientists and support staff formerly employed by the Pfizer/Pharmacia Corporation.

The $10 million will come from money that would have been used for a targeted tax credit that Pfizer will not receive, because current law makes the credit contingent on creating a certain number of new jobs.
