The $48 billion spending plan for the budget year that starts Oct. 1 is about to be signed into law.

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has scheduled a bill-signing ceremony
for Tuesday afternoon at the Romney Building across from the Capitol.

The package includes a small cut in individual income taxes, twice as much money for film credits, a slight increase in education funding and a down payment on school employees' health care costs in retirement.

The Republican-controlled House and Senate passed the budget
bills three weeks ago. Snyder has the right to veto portions of the
bills.

Democrats have criticized the GOP budget plan for not spending
more on education.
