Sen. Sean McCann & Rep. Jon Hoadley Discuss State Budget Priorities

“Don’t tell me where your priorities are. Show me where you spend your money and I’ll tell you what they are.” – James W. Frick

On July 22, ISAAC hosted a forum with Senator Sean McCann and Representative Jon Hoadley to share information on how state budget decisions are made. They explained how we can advocate for a state budget that will provide funding to repair the roads, improve our educational system and ensure clean drinking water for everyone in Michigan.  Currently, Michigan ranks at the bottom in comparison to other states in infrastructure investment and revenue growth in education. They presented a budget plan that will allow us to strengthen our communities by investing in our future. Here’s the link to their presentation slides:
