Michigan House Vote on K-12 Budget for Fiscal Year 2017/2018
The Michigan House vote is still pending when the Senate votes on the K-12 budget for fiscal year 2017/2018. There are four bills on the House Calendar for Thursday, April 1st.
1) In an attempt to control costs and streamline a large number of government programs, the Legislature passed legislation in the form of House Bill 1601, sponsored by the following Representatives: David Bonior, D-Grand Ledge; Mark Meadows, R-Tompkins; Debbie Dingell, D-Dearborn; John Moolenaar, D-Mt. Pleasant; and John Shimkus, D-East Lansing. The bill also established a Committee for this purpose. If the Senate Committee for General Appropriations is unable to come to an agreement on the budget of the state during the next legislative session, House Bill 1601 is being referred to the Senate Committee on Appropriations for possible amendment. In that case, and if the bill is not enacted by the State Senate, it will be referred for further study.
Bonior: David A.
Bonior: Mark F.
This is a meeting of the House Committee on Appropriations. The Committee shall, at least three days after the preceding meeting, meet in closed session to consider, read, and enact (a) any appropriation bill, (b) any bill for the resolution of the budget deficit, or (c) any other bill, and is required to pass any appropriation bill it may receive in closed session or during the regular legislative session that follows the regular legislative session for which such appropriation bill was submitted.
Whitmer signed on to a $17.1 billion K-12 budget in Grand Rapids.

The State Legislature continues to debate funding for the state’s public schools.
Gary Herbert is scheduled to sign a $17 1 billion state budget to avoid a $1 billion shortfall in the 2013-14 budget cycle. But his $14 billion spending plan would leave the state with a $4 billion deficit in the current budget year.
A recent poll by Public Policy Polling showed that Herbert’s budget is favored by voters, but his plan needs the approval of the Republican-controlled Legislature to become law.
The Senate’s budget committee may try to block Herbert’s plan, as it did when it took up legislation to end the state’s Medicaid program.
It’s possible the Senate could pass a version of the budget it could not pass the House of Representatives.
Legislation to end Medicaid funding for Grand Rapids would pass the House but not the Senate.
“Your bill to end Medicaid for Grand Rapids would move the state budget to the House to pass it,” said Sen. Chris Kapenga, R-Grand Rapids, the Senate budget committee leader, at the Feb. 11 House Finance Committee meeting.
“There’s not a chance we’re going to get a vote on that. But it’s the best chance we have to get a budget (out of the two houses) at this time,” he said.
Kapenga said his bill would allow state government to move money into the Medicaid program, but only if the Department of Human Services approves it.
Kapenga could not discuss the specific language of his bill or what it would cost on the Medicaid budget if the department approves it.
The Republican governor would have to sign it into law to eliminate the funding limit for Medicaid.
“It’s not one thing. It all has to go through the Legislature,” he said.
“We’re not going to have the luxury of saying, ‘Here’s a way to pay for it,’” he said.

The literacy program of Grand Valley State University seeks to provide students with the opportunity to acquire the skills necessary to be reading, writing and comprehending content, in both printed and electronic media. The program uses the principle of “content in print, content in electronic form” to promote literacy skills in all learners regardless of the medium used.

The curriculum includes a traditional academic course that addresses content in print, content in electronic format, and writing skills that encourage students to acquire skills necessary for reading, writing, and thinking. It also includes a workshop or “expert-fied” course that promotes critical thinking skills necessary for students to make important decisions, analyze, and evaluate information.
The curriculum also offers a series of field trips that include trips to two local libraries. One trips focuses on reading materials in print and the other trips focuses on reading materials in electronic format. Field trips also lead to individual research activities that require students to examine information in print and electronic media.
The literacy program of Grand Valley State University is committed to providing students with the opportunity to acquire the academic and learning opportunities necessary to be reading literature, writing, and thinking in both print and electronic media.
The reading curriculum is organized into two cycles: a traditional academic course that addresses material in print, and a “expert-fied” course that addresses material in electronically format.
The “expert-fied” course examines the characteristics of the electronic media, such as the use of photographs, videos, music, and animation. This course is designed so that reading materials will be taught in the same manner as the traditional academic course. It is also designed so that the student will have an opportunity to learn to evaluate information.
The reading sessions are held during the academic term. Because students may not take the entire course on one day, they are encouraged to take all sessions at one time. Students are required to take the readings that relate to their grade level in one session.
