LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan lawmakers continue to take some preliminary votes connected to the next state budget.
The Republican-led Senate Appropriations Committee is expected to take votes on state aid to universities and public schools on Thursday. Funding likely will be cut in both areas for the fiscal year starting in October.
Michigan lawmakers would like to wrap up budget decisions by June. They are progressing quickly on preliminary votes for many state departments, including prisons and human services.
Most state departments will be cut as Michigan continues to struggle with budget problems.
