Republican legislative leaders and Governor Granholm appear close to a deal to balance this year's state budget.
Things are coming together a month after a Senate committee rejected the Democratic governor's first attempt.
A spokesman for Republican Senate Majority Leader Ken Sikkema of Wyoming says he expects the Senate Appropriations Committee to vote next week on a new executive order to help resolve a $376 million deficit.
Ari Adler said he expects to have a deal by the time the Senate Appropriations Committee considers the order next week.
The panel rejected the governor's first executive order because it cut funding for higher education by $30 million. It's not clear how the new plan handles funding for colleges and universities.
