Michigan Weekend Update:
Not real thrilled about her offering up the EITC in trade though - but since the House has made noises in that direction lately as well, I'd rather see it go towards the Promise than eliminating the Republican-created MBT surcharge. I guess. You big meanies.
A leading public school official said Friday that Senate Majority Leader Mike Bishop has allowed his campaign for attorney general to affect his judgment on funding for public schools.
Asked on Michigan Public Television's "Off the Record" about why Mr. Bishop has refused to support more revenue besides the Senate Republican plan to delay a scheduled increase in the Earned Income Tax Credit, William Mayes, executive director of the Michigan Association of School Administrators, said, "He'd like to have a next political office. ... It's affecting his decision making."
Bishop was in Grand Rapids yesterday, "debating" with Dillon surrogate Tim Melton in front of the only crowd that Republicans will face - the GR Chamber of Commerce. You won't catch Mike meeting with school officials or groups of students. The general public need not apply.
