Child care providers to benefit from bipartisan state budget bill

Michigan will make more kids eligible for child care subsidies, equip state troopers with body cameras, and make permanent a pandemic wage hike for caregivers under the next state budget.

 

The bipartisan spending plan also will boost payments for child care providers and enable them to give $1,000 bonuses to new or existing staff.

 

Michigan's savings account will grow by 500 million dollars.

 

As part of the deal, Governor Gretchen Whitmer agreed to a Republican-written provision to prevent the state and local governments from issuing coronavirus vaccine requirements that go further than plans outlined by President Joe Biden.
