STATE LEGISLATIVE ACTIVITIES
• Governor signs remaining budgets; line item vetos parts—Avoiding another government shutdown, Gov. Granholm signed the final six budgets bills for the FY 2010 state budget one week ago, but vetoing a total of $127 million in expenditures across all 15 department budgets. The budget process continues as the House and Senate fiscal agencies work through their analyses of the Governor's budget vetoes. Yesterday, Janet Reynolds Snyder and Kadi Janssen met with Representative Spade, who is awaiting even further clarification from the House Fiscal Agency. Information will be passed along to you as quickly as possible. We are aware that several other analyses have been distributed by other entities, though we have found errors in the documents and want to make certain any information given to Federation members is accurate. We expect to have a written update in time for the November 11 Board of Directors meeting. Thank you for your patience!
