Lack of resolution could lead to shutdown in Michigan

Michigan is only a few hours away from a possible government shutdown and there is still no budget deal.

On Sunday, the house could not pass a deal to add the sales tax to a range of services.

The plan would have taxed services such as carpet cleaning, investment advice, and skiing lessons as well as dozens of other services.

No Republicans voted for the plan and six Democrats also opposed it, which killed the plan.

That was one way state lawmakers were trying to close a projected 1.7 billion dollar gap.

So far there are 35,000 Michigan workers who are planning on staying home on Monday because of a partial state shutdown.
