New Michigan Budget Could Be Signed Today; How It Impacts You

Posted: Updated:
LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Schoolchildren and others will be impacted when Michigan's next state budget starts in about three months.

Gov. Rick Snyder plans to finish signing the $53.2 billion spending plan as early as today. It affects many corners of Michigan life - from how much it costs to attend college to increased arts funding and how many state troopers patrol the highways.

If you attend a public university, your tuition and fees are unlikely to rise more than 3.2 percent. If you have a 4-year-old, your child might be eligible for preschool under a plan to end a waiting list for disadvantaged kids.

If you renew your license plate, expect more scrutiny from the secretary of state's office. It will have additional funding to verify you have auto insurance.
