“2009 State of Michigan Budget Countdown”

Michigan is currently facing a $2.7 billion budget deficit for the fiscal year that begins October 1.

MCC, whose position on the budget can be read here, will be posting daily updates on its Twitter page and list updated news reports below. Please take a moment to contact your State Representative and Senator through the Action Alert below, and urge them to fund services that protect Michigan’s poor and vulnerable population.
