Governor Whitmer’s FY23 Budget: Growing Michigan’s Economy, Creating Jobs, Supporting Small Businesses
Governor Gretchen Whitmer released her fourth executive budget recommendation that puts Michiganders first and delivers on the issues that matter most to Michigan families.
Here’s what the budget has for Michigan’s economy and workforce.
Governor Whitmer is focused on growing Michigan’s economy, creating good-paying jobs, and empowering small businesses. Right now, Michigan has economic momentum. In 2021, Michigan added 220,000 jobs and went from a projected $3 billion deficit at the beginning of the pandemic to a $7 billion surplus to kick-off 2022. The governor’s budget takes advantage of the opportunity Michigan has to cut taxes for seniors and working families, help local economies grow, ensure Michiganders have the skills they need to get good-paying jobs, and land transformational investments that will bring billions in investment and create thousands of jobs.
