Michigan Legislature split over funding for land bank authority

By Jack Spencer | Michigan Capitol Confidential

The Michigan House and Senate disagree about the state spending $1.7 million for operational purposes to the Fast Track Land Bank Authority. The Senate wants to send the money to the Land Bank Authority, but the House doesn’t.

This issue has arisen in regard to Senate Bill 608, a supplemental appropriations bill that makes approximately a quarter of a billion dollars in adjustments to the current fiscal year budget. The House passed version of Senate Bill 608 cut 20 initiatives and projects that would have been funded in the Senate’s version — the $1.7 million for the Land Bank Authority was one of the cuts.
