LANSING— Senate Majority Leader Arlan Meekhof, R-West Olive, issued the following statement today in response to Gov. Snyder’s Fiscal Year 2018 budget presentation:
“The Governor presented a plan for the next fiscal year that continues the trend he established seven years ago of a thoughtful state budget.
The Senate Republicans are committed to passage of a spending plan that is focused on taxpayer priorities and sound return on investment for our citizens. My colleagues and I work hard to pass commonsense reforms and practical legislation that put Michigan in the best position to support a robust economy and a thriving environment for growth.
The Governor’s presentation today is the first step in the process toward adopting a responsible state budget. The Senate Republicans will review the plan and look for areas where we can agree and even improve.”
