State lawmakers return to Lansing
Michigan lawmakers will be back at the state Capitol today after a two-week Spring break and it appears that their attention will turn to the state budget.
Budget-related subcommittees in both the House and Senate are scheduled to meet today.
The state faces a projected budget deficit of around $1.5 billion for the fiscal year that begins October 1st. Governor Rick Snyder says he wants lawmakers to finish the budget by May 31st.
Many lawmakers, however, say they don’t think the budget process will be finished before this summer.
