Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder Monday signed the final, supplemental spending pieces of the fiscal 2013 budget.
The bill features $36.1 million of additional spending in fiscal 2013. That includes $17.6 million for the Department of Corrections and $15 million for financial assistance for farmers who suffered crop losses over the summer.
“These additional funds will help keep Michigan families and homes safe, provide relief to those in the agriculture industry who suffered crop losses, and continue our efforts to make state government more efficient and effective,” Snyder said in a statement.
Snyder signed the bills as the state’s fiscal year began on Oct. 1. Legislators completed the bulk of the $48.2 billion budget in June.
