Renew Michigan Supplemental Approved to include $69 Million in Continuing Money for Environmental Clean-ups

Renew Michigan has been the top priority of the Governor, with rumblings that, if money was not found for brownfield clean-ups, no Part 201 bill would be signed by Snyder.  A deal was made late last night and a supplemental was approved that included $69 million in continuing money for clean-ups.  The money is broken down into three pots ($44.85 million in environmental clean-ups, $15.18 million for local recycling and $9 million) and comes from the general fund.  This money will come from the general fund, but will cause no loss in the school aid fund because of the Wayfair online sales tax revenue which will more than cover the loss.
