LANSING, Mich. —
The Michigan House of Representatives is expected to pass a school aid budget Thursday morning, according to a report in The Detroit News--for now, legislative leaders are not releasing any details.

The School Aid Budget is one of two spending bills that must be signed into law before Oct. 1 to prevent a government shutdown. The other is the General Fund Budget.

Governor Gretchen Whitmer's office sent out a statement on the school aid deal Wednesday night saying "we understand the house is putting an addition $30 million in one-time funds toward special education. That's a move in the right direction but still nowhere near what the governor proposed in the Executive Budget--and far short of what our children deserve."
