Michigan's Budget Battle Continues

The battle over Michigan's budget continues as lawmakers look for ways to save nearly a billion dollars.

A broad budget and economic recovery plan outlined by one democrat lawmaker relies heavily on consolidating government and school services.

It is a move he says would save millions.

The state is also considering cutting life time health coverage for statehouse members.

Another idea comes from Governor Granholm who has proposed a 2% tax on services such as haircuts, but republicans oppose the idea.
