Statement from State Representative Fred Durhal Jr. on returning increased state revenues to cities:
“We learned today that Michigan can expect more than $482 million more combined in General Fund and School Aid Fund revenues this year, and more than $219 million combined in Fiscal Year 2014. The general fund revenues need to go back to our cities so they can provide the basic services, such as trash pickup and police and fire protection, to residents. Detroit especially has suffered from all of the revenue-sharing cuts that have happened over the past two years under Gov. Rick Snyder. If the governor wants to put this money in the state’s rainy day fund, then I would tell him that it’s already ‘raining’ in our cities and we can stop the rain by investing this money back into our communities to make them livable for residents.”
Please let me know how I can be of assistance to you so that together, we can continue to make progress in our community.
