LANSING, MI (MPRN)-- Governor Gretchen Whitmer continues to defend line item vetoes in budgets she otherwise approved last week.
She also says it’s not too late to restore some of the spending.
Cuts to human services as well as the Pure Michigan tourism promotion program are unpopular with Republicans and Democrats alike. The governor says her calls were tough, but necessary. She also says she’d prefer a more bipartisan approach.
“I think this is an unprecedented time. It’s unfortunate. It’s not good for anyone, to be honest.”
