2013 House Bill 4328: Appropriations: 2013-2014 “omnibus” budget

The final version of the non-education portion of the state government budget for the fiscal year that begins on Oct. 1, 2013. This would appropriate $34.392 billion, compared to $34.355 billion the previous year. (When interdepartmental transfers are deducted the amounts are slightly lower.) Notably, the budget does not include $1.2 billion from higher transportation taxes Gov. Rick Snyder has recommended, or $1.5 billion from the federal health care law’s expansion of Medicaid. It also does not permit the Department of Education to spend money on a "Common Core" curriculum initiative without explicit legislative authorization.
When amounts appropriated for education are added (see House Bill 4228), the state budget for the next fiscal year will be $49.520 billion, of which $19.331 billion is federal money. Total state spending from state taxes, fees, fines, etc. will be $30.189 billion, a 4.0 percent increase over the previous year.
