LANSING (AP) – Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder said Tuesday that his next budget proposal likely won't include further cuts to public schools and universities.
In an interview with The Associated Press, Snyder said he thinks the state will be "finished with the cut model" for schools in 2012-13, after they endured some major reductions in the current fiscal year. Public schools were cut more than 2 percent, or about $1 billion, and the state's universities absorbed 15 percent cuts. Most universities raised tuition by nearly 7 percent as a result.
