Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm has signed several budget bills into law that were submitted from the state Legislature.
Granholm signed 10 bills Thursday, including a retirement incentive plan for state workers and several departmental budgets.
Lawmakers wrapped up the final key pieces of the next state budget on Wednesday, beating a budget-balancing deadline that coincides with the start of the new fiscal year Friday.
Lawmakers erased a projected $484 million deficit in the next budget. The deficit would have been far larger if it weren't for extra federal help.
Granholm also signed a House bill banning a synthetic drug known as K-2. It takes effect Friday.
The drug is sometimes sold as potpourri or incense but it also can be smoked. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
