Will Governor Whitmer Veto Budget Bills
According to WILX, budgets have been sent to Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, but there's no word yet on if she will veto some or all of the budget bills that have been sent to her.
The state government will shut down if the budget isn't signed into law by Tuesday, Oct.1 because the legislature won't be in session again before that time.
Whitmer and Democrats oppose the Republicans planned use of $400 million in one time general funds in the transportation budget.
Republicans say using existing revenues prevents the need for Whitmer's proposed gas tax increase, which is dead.
Governor Whitmer said Michiganders deserve better. It's time for Republicans to stop playing games and put a real road funding solution on the table that keeps drivers safe, ensures our roads get fixed with the right materials, and makes road repairs now so costs don't keep going up over the long run.
