From the Associated Press — Gretchen Whitmer has signed a $62.7 billion state budget hours before the new fiscal year. It will fund a new tuition-assistance program for adults and avoid major government cuts despite the economic downturn during the coronavirus pandemic. The plan, which has bipartisan legislative support, also includes a slight boost in aid for schools and a full or partial
restoration of tourism and job-training funds that were vetoed amid an impasse a year ago and again when COVID-19 struck. The process was delayed this year due to uncertainty over the pandemic’s effect on tax revenues.
