Michigan’s governor has unveiled her COVID plan for the state, but its expected to run into strong Republican opposition.
On Tuesday Governor Whitmer unveiled a $5.6 billion COVID plan, focused on relief programs related to the pandemic. The GOP this week increased their call to block spending due to business restrictions, according to Bridge MI dot com. Almost all of the plan’s funding is centered on federal funds, setting up a potential showdown with the GOP-led State Legislature.
The House Appropriations chair has said he might block spending requests until restrictions on businesses and restaurants are eased.
Governor Whitmer is urging cooperation.
