February, 2021

Following an unusual budget cycle, with the COVID-19 pandemic interrupting typical budget deliberations and the need for a rare third revenue estimating conference before the 2021 budget was completed, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has presented her 2022 budget recommendation. While much of the 2021 budget was focused on the response to the COVID-19 public health crisis, the governor’s 2022 budget takes a look at the recovery ahead by prioritizing funding in the following areas: public education, economic opportunity, public health, infrastructure, clean energy and the environment, and equity.

This summary from the Michigan League for Public Policy provides highlights of the entire budget.
