Tax Dollars at Work

Tax Dollars at Work — June 2011

This report includes data on spending and recipients for an array of health and social programs administered by the Departments of Human Services, Community Health, Education, and Labor and Economic Growth.

With Michigan’s fiscal woes and a structural deficit (public needs outpacing revenue) continuing for the foreseeable future, fiscal solutions that further erode the safety net will likely continue to be proposed and considered, and perhaps approved. This does not bode well for low-income Michigan residents struggling to meet their needs in this challenging economic time.
