    Senate Majority Leader Mike Bishop's proposed cuts ($876 million)

    $5 million: Comprehensive Transportation Funds (could affect local rail, bus and smaller local transit services).

    $78.6 million: Community Health (could include choices such as eliminating 19- and 20-year-olds from Medicaid, $36 million; eliminating caretaker relatives from Medicaid, $10.8 million; cutting Medicaid reimbursement rates 2.5%, $42.6 million).

    $40 million: Corrections (includes already proposed closures of one prison and one camp and efficiencies already under way, but might require closing two additional prisons and one more prison camp).

    $116.8 million: Human Services (possible reductions include day care and cash assistance changes, $82.6 million; reduce Bureau of Juvenile Justice by 25 people and close four of its centers, $4.6 million; reduce foster care caseload by 200, $2.3 million; delay IT projects, $4.7 million; plus find at least $22.7 million in additional savings).

    $23.7 million: Other departments (could affect anything from gas station inspections to background checks on school employees to State Police operations).

    $190 million: Early retirement offer to state employees. Expected result: 9,000 retire, 2,250 replacements hired.

    $75.4 million: Cut negotiated increases in state employee pay and benefits in half.

    $332.7 million: Hold funding flat for K-12 schools, community colleges, universities.

    Other possibilities for balancing the budget

    $219.4 million: Onetime gain in revenue from changeover to new Michigan Business Tax.


    Up to $990.9 million:

    • End grants, including up to $398.7 million in revenue sharing to local governments, $78 million in Community Transportation Fund grants, $77 million to schools, $31 million for health programs, $22.8 million for training and welfare to work programs, $12.5 million for horse racing, $14 million for remonumentation, $14 million for State Police secondary road patrols, $19 million for the arts and libraries, $17.9 million in mobile radio service payments.

    • Take $75 million from the 21st Century Jobs Fund.

    • Renege on the $164.5-million promise to repay community colleges and universities for their postponed summer payment. • End $17.9-million cooperative housing tax exemption for senior citizens.

    There is one good piece of news. If the government goes into shut down and there is still money being spent without a budget, its an impeachable offense!

    Than having her removed from office...we need an MBA/CEO not a lawyer/politician for a governor...she has proven beyond a doubt that she is a bumbling incompetent, hiding behind unions, education and public safety.

    Thats been exactly my point since devoss ran against her! With a money based crisis, who do you need more in office, a berkley educated liberal from canuk-land, or a CEO who knows how to run a corporation and know how to tend to the bottom line?
