Top lawmakers and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s administration have announced a deal to finalize the next state budget.
They had waited to work out spending plans for state departments and funding for universities, community colleges and local governments after enacting a preK-12 budget in the summer.
The Republican-led Legislature is expected to vote next week, about a week before the Sept. 30 deadline.
Details of the agreement were not immediately released Wednesday.
The pending legislation will cover all non-school spending, including social services, public health, roads and environmental protection.
