budget will be needed.
The Granholm administration
is acknowledging a temporary
budget extension would be need-
ed to avoid a shutdown at this
point, but says some sort of rev-
enue increase must be included
in a budget plan before she would
approve a temporary budget.
The state has a projected $1.75
billion deficit for the next budget
year, and Granholm says more
money is needed to support pub-
lic safety, health care and educa-
tion.
"She needs to sign a continu-
ation budget in good faith so
that both sides have more time
to respond," Bishop said, noting
another 30-day extension could
be needed if a permanent solution
is not found during October.
Bishop accused Granholm of
"running a three-ring circus" by
threatening a shutdown of gov-
ernment, and lawmakers have
been inundated with calls from
worried officials at K-12 schools
and local governments, as well as
others who could be affected by
the loss of services.
