State Rep. Ann Bollin again urged caution about unsustainable spending in the new state budget proposal after fiscal and economic leaders projected declining state revenue during today’s Consensus Revenue Estimating Conference.

Bollin, who serves on the House Appropriations Committee, said today’s expert projections are further confirmation of a slowing economy.

“This is proof positive that we should be reining in spending, paying down debt, and putting more money into the rainy-day fund so that the state has stability in future years,” Bollin said. “It’s time to take a serious look at the budget bills that are on the table and make smart adjustments to prepare for the tough times ahead.”

Bollin said much of the spending in the $81.4 billion budget proposed by the House Democrat majority is pork that ventures far away from the essential services state government should be focused on providing to residents.

“Michigan residents want to see their tax dollars used to provide essential services well,” said Bollin, R-Brighton Township. “People want safe communities where they can raise a family, good schools for their kids, and local roads they can drive down without dodging potholes. Instead, they’ve been presented with a bloated budget full of political projects and programs that unnecessarily expand the role of government beyond what their tax dollars can afford.”
