2005 House Bill 4831: "Omnibus" FY 2006 State Budget Proposal

Public Act 154 of 2005

Introduced by Rep. Scott Hummel R- on May 25, 2005
To provide the “template” or “place holder” for a Fiscal Year 2005-2006 budget that uses the “Price of Government” process, which groups various government expenditures by issue area rather than department, prioritizes programs, and fully funds them in order of priority until the available money is used up, at which point programs “below the line” do not get funded. This bill contains no appropriations, but may be amended at a later date to include them.   Official Text and Analysis.

The amendment passed by voice vote in the House on June 9, 2005
An "omnibus" multidepartment Fiscal Year 2005-2006 House budget. This is one of just three House budgets that will contain virtually all state spending. Together they authorize $39.7 billion in gross spending, about the same as the current year, and approximately $800 million less than recommended by Gov. Jennifer Granholm. This budget tightens eligibility standards for welfare and Medicaid, requires some premiums and co-pays for the latter, closes two prisons, revises university funding distributions, increases school funding, and requires no new or increased taxes.

Received in the Senate on August 31, 2005
The House-Senate conference report for an "omnibus" multidepartment Fiscal Year 2005-2006 House budget. This appropriates virtually all state spending covered by departmental budgets that “originated” in the House, but not those that originated in the Senate. Included is funding for the Department of Community Health, $10.29 billion, ($2.951 billion General Fund), up 0.3 percent from the previous year; Corrections, $1.877 billion, ($1.798 billion General Fund), up 6.3 percent; the Department of Education, $118 million, ($16.4 million General Fund), up 2.5 percent; the Department of Environmental Quality, $375.7 million ($31.8 million General Fund), up 16.4 percent; the Department of Natural Resources, $269 million ($25.5 million General Fund), up 2 percent; Community Colleges, $281 million, down 3.7 percent, and Higher Education, $1.733 billion ($1.57 billion General Fund), up 1.3 percent increase from actual FY 2004-2005 appropriations. The budget does not cut 15,000 current recipients from state welfare rolls, close two Upper Peninsula prisons, or substantially cut funding for Northern Michigan University and Wayne State University as part of a move toward college funding based on actual enrollments, all of which were in the House-passed version. (Grand Valley State, Oakland and Saginaw Valley State universities get large increases, and the others small ones.) The budget does eliminate Medicaid eligibility for some current beneficiaries (far fewer than the House-passed version, though), and requires co-pays for others. It does not include the Senate-passed provision requiring higher co-pays and monthly premiums for some able-bodied Medicaid recipients, but lower these if they sign an agreement to stop smoking and adopt other healthy behaviors.
