Governor Whitmer Restores Previously Vetoed Funding Increase to Michigan Charter School Students

Governor Whitmer Restores Previously Vetoed Funding Increase to Michigan Charter School Students

December 20, 2019

Today, Nina Rees, president and CEO of the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools, released the following statement regarding the signing of Senate Bill 154 by Governor Whitmer:

“We are pleased to see that Michigan lawmakers have restored the funding increase for charter schools that Governor Whitmer vetoed earlier this year. Before the veto, charter schools were scheduled to receive the same $240 per pupil increase that district schools received. With the enactment of Senate Bill 154, they will again receive this increase.  

Michigan’s children should never be used as pawns in a political face-off. After Governor Whitmer’s veto, charter school families, teachers, and leaders effectively voiced their disapproval of such tactics. State legislators were virtually unanimous in their support for the bill that restored the funding increase. We are glad that Governor Whitmer received the message loud and clear and that charter school students will receive the funding that they deserve.”
