"In last week’s supplemental budget bill, Governor Whitmer and the Michigan legislature followed through on their $250 million commitment to investing in the state’s students, its workforce and long-term economic success.

The Michigan state legislature passed a budget that invests over $2 billion in higher education for Michiganders. TICAS applauds this investment’s growth from last year’s $1.8 billion, demonstrating a growing commitment to improving higher education access and affordability. Both are essential to achieve the state’s 60 by 30 attainment goal.
