Budget Supplemental Agreement Passes Senate

The Senate voted yesterday on a budget supplemental agreement containing boilerplate language that would enable a legislative response to undo State Administrative Board transfers for the remainder of this fiscal year, require that budgets be completed by July 1 each fiscal year and provide more Auditor General oversight of Executive Branch office records.


As passed, the supplementals would restore some of the $947 million in line-item vetoes executed by the governor.  They are the same bills adopted by the House last week.


The deal resolves the disagreement between Governor Whitmer, who did not want to diminish executive branch power for her successors, and Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey (R-Clark Lake), who wanted a statutory change preventing the governor from making budget transfers on the scale that was done following budget passage.


Passing the Senate were the two budget supplemental bills, SB 152 covering departments and agencies and SB 154, which covers school aid. No spending changes were made to those bills from how they passed last week. Also passing was HB 4336, HB 4574, HB 5176 and HB 5177. All six bills passed 38-0.
