    Michigan revenue of $5.8 billion is higher than previous expectations

    Economists said Friday that Michigan’s two major funds will receive billions more than previously expected, once again providing good news to Governor Gretchen Whitmer and lawmakers ahead of the budget cycle.

    More than $5.8 billion in additional combined tax revenue for the past, current and upcoming fiscal year exceeded expectations from last spring.

    In the coming weeks, the Democratic governor, Christopher Harkins, said she will present a spending plan to the Republican-led legislature focused on supporting education, clean water and jobs.
