Long closed-door meetings and public pressure have failed to resolve Michigan's state government budget crisis.
The state Senate and state House met into the night but failed to reach a deal on filling an estimated $1.7 billion shortfall in the budget year that starts Oct. 1.
Thursday was the deadline for placing any part of a money-raising plan before Michigan voters in November.
Democratic House Speaker Andy Dillon and Republican Senate Majority Leader Mike Bishop blamed each other for a possible state government shutdown.
Money-raising proposals including adding a penny to the sales tax and temporarily raising the income tax by seven-10ths of a percentage point.
