Michigan cuts extra funding for 51 districts

Oct. 20, 2009
Money was intended to protect districts harmed by property tax reform

From The Detroit News: Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm has signed a public school aid bill that spells double trouble for some local districts -- a cut of $165 per student and elimination of money designed to protect them when property tax reform was passed. The governor vetoed $51.5 million for 51 eligible districts. The largest cuts among the 26 districts from the Detroit area are in Dearborn and Livonia, each of which is losing $4.9 million.
