LANSING, MI (AP)-- Michigan's Legislature has given final approval to a bill to lift a new July 1 deadline by which it's supposed to send a budget to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.
The legislation, which she plans to sign, would delay the requirement until 2021 due to uncertainty over a revenue shortfall caused by the pandemic.
Michigan’s fiscal year doesn't start until Oct. 1. But lawmakers typically try to finalize the spending plan months in advance.
