Gov. Jennifer Granholm acknowledges Michigan's next government budget will include some cuts to K-12 education but says she's fighting to protect against deep reductions.
Granholm visited with a few members of her administration and Democratic lawmakers on the House floor Thursday. Legislators are racing to avoid a possible partial government shutdown by an Oct. 1 deadline.
The Democratic governor wants some tax or revenue increases to offset deep cuts to K-12 education, college scholarships, community health programs and day care programs.
But Granholm says residents need to be prepared for cuts to programs as lawmakers try to eliminate a $2.8 billion budget deficit.
Granholm says no one wants a government shutdown.
