2012 House Bill 5365 ↩
House Roll Call 198:
The House version of the non-education portion of the state government budget for the fiscal year that begins on Oct. 1, 2012. (House Bill 5372 contains school, college and university spending.) This would appropriate $34.195 billion, compared to $33.022 billion the previous year. Of this, $15.03 billion comes from state tax, fee and other revenue, compared to $15.63 billion the previous year. The rest of this budget is federal money ($18.11 billion, compared to $17.52 billion the previous year). <p>While both the House proposed slightly less spending than recommended by Gov. Rick Snyder, they also significantly watered down "best practices" grants he proposed, making some of the money distributed to schools, local governments and universities on the basis of whether they adopt specified fiscal and transparency reforms.
