CHICAGO — Michigan lawmakers will have another month to tackle a $2.8 billion deficit after they approved a 30-day interim budget following a brief government shutdown early Thursday morning amid disagreements over a permanent 2010 budget.

Legislators approved 14 of the 15 bills that make up the 2010 budget, but several key measures are expected to change over the next month. Among the issues that remain to be resolved — or are likely to undergo changes in a final budget — are a final K-12 budget, cuts in revenue aid to local governments, and the fate of a popular college scholarship program.
