Republicans who control the Michigan House say they have figured out a way to balance the state budget for the fiscal year that begins this fall without raising taxes and fees.

But they wouldn't explain how they did it at a news conference today in Lansing.

House Speaker Craig DeRoche of Novi would not explain which programs and services got cut in the GOP's $40 billion spending plan.

DeRoche said it's newsworthy just to say that the House is proposing a budget that does not raise taxes.

The House Appropriations Committee is expected to vote on the GOP spending plan either Wednesday or Thursday. A vote from the full House likely will come a day after the panel's vote.
