From Michigan Democratic Party
Michigan Democratic Party Chair Mark Brewer issued the following statement on Governor Snyder’s budget proposal:
“This budget fails to address the gaping hole in our K-12 public education system left by the Republican budget from one year ago. Governor Snyder and Republicans robbed $1 billion from public education in order to pay for a $1.8 billion tax cut for big corporations and wealthy CEOS, which has failed to produce a single job. This budget does not restore those funds.
“We need to be investing in our kids who are the future of this state and this country. Governor Snyder’s alleged ‘increase’ in public education funding doesn’t even match the rate of inflation. This budget will lead to further cuts in our schools, including more layoffs and larger class sizes for our kids.
“If the Governor and the Republicans are serious about investing in public education, they should restore the funding they cut last year. We need to be investing in our kids and giving teachers the tools they need to succeed. This budget does nothing to accomplish those goals.”
