It probably won't be long until the state's Pure Michigan tourism advertising campaign gets more money.
The Michigan Senate on Tuesday overwhelmingly passed legislation that would transfer an additional $10 million into the campaign from the state's 21st Century Jobs Fund. That would be an increase from the currently scheduled $10 million.
The Michigan House passed its own version of the proposal earlier this month. But the proposal can't go to Gov. Rick Snyder until the House and Senate approve the exact same bill, which hasn't happened yet.
Pure Michigan campaign supporters say the latest proposed increase would boost overall funding for the program to $25 million as requested by Snyder.
Lawmakers say they generally like the Pure Michigan program but haven't agreed on funding plans in recent years.
