Assembly to Review Senate Budget Proposal

(AP)–The state Assembly’s top Republicans say they agree with most of the Senate’s new budget proposal but will have to review the plan. Senate Republicans introduced their proposal Tuesday as a standoff with their Assembly counterparts over road funding stretches on. It calls for $712 million in additional borrowing to pay for roads, gives public schools $650 million in additional aid and repeals the personal property tax on businesses. Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, Majority Leader Jim Steineke and Rep. John Nygren, co-chair of the Legislature’s budget committee, issued a statement saying they agree with the “vast majority” of the plan. They say they want to make a significant investment in schools and reduce taxes. They didn’t offer specifics or say whether they agree with the road borrowing. Vos has pushed for raising more revenue for roads rather than borrowing to pay for projects.
