A $1.3 billion bipartisan supplemental funding bill will be headed to the governor after getting final legislative approval this week. The bill contains a $600 million incentive for a new EV battery plant targeted for Calhoun County, a $170 million deposit into the Strategic Outreach and Attraction Reserve (SOAR) Fund, $212 million for energy efficiency updates to homes, and $63 million for Medicaid long-term care services, which includes a 2% rate increase to nursing homes.
Additional items include:
The House passed the legislation in early February. However, prior to passage, during a 13-hour session day, the Senate made changes to the bill, necessitating approval by the House. The House voted favorably for the Senate version of the bill the following day. The bill will be sent to Governor Gretchen Whitmer for consideration.
