2011 House Bill 4325: Appropriations: K-12, colleges and universities (House Roll Call 154)
facebook  twitter 

Passed 59 to 50 in the House on May 26, 2011, the final House-Senate agreement for the 2011-2012 school, community college and state university budgets. It appropriates $12.66 billion for K-12 public schools, compared to $12.17 billion originally recommended by Gov. Rick Snyder, and $13.13 billion the previous year (inflated by $420 million in “stimulus” and other one-time money). Per-pupil grants would be reduced by $300, but around $100 of that would be “given back” as a pension contribution subsidy, and another $100 to school districts that adopt specified reforms including paying 10 percent of health insurance benefits, refusing the policy terms of the teacher union's insurance company, competitive bidding on non-instructional services, consolidating some services and more transparency. The budget includes $133 million to cover potential transition costs of a possible school employee pension reform.

The bill also appropriates $1.36 billion for state universities, compared to $1.58 billion the previous year, and more would be cut from universities that raise tuition by more than 7.1 percent. Community colleges would get $283.8 million, compared to $295.8 million last year. $395 million of the college and university budgets would come from tax revenue earmarked to the School Aid Fund, in the past mostly used just for K-12 schools.

Re: 2011 House Bill 4325 (Appropriations: K-12, colleges and universities )  by marcysmith on January 6, 2013 
Public schools across the country, struggling with cuts in state funding, rising personnel costs and lower tax revenues, are shifting costs to busy students and their parents by imposing or boosting fees for everything from enrolling in honors English to riding the bus. At high schools in several states, it can cost more than $200 just to walk in the door, thanks to registration fees, technology fees and unspecified "instructional fees."

Michigan also has more than 60 independent colleges, universities and an online college that enrolled nearly 88,000 students last year, but these institutions do not receive state funds. The Michigan Constitution grants to the public university boards of control autonomy in all decisions regarding the institutions’ operations and policies.

Today, most governments recognize the importance of public health programs or special education degrees in reducing the incidence disease, disability, and the effects of aging and other physical and mental health conditions, although public health generally receives significantly less government funding compared with medicine. In recent years, public health programs providing vaccinations have made incredible strides in promoting health, including the eradication of smallpox, a disease that plagued humanity for thousands of years.
