Michigan will make more kids eligible for child care subsidies, equip state troopers with body cameras and make permanent a pandemic wage hike for caregivers under the next state budget.
The bipartisan spending plan also will boost payments for child care providers and enable them to give $1,000 bonuses to new or existing staff.
Michigan's savings account will grow by $500 million as a result of the plan.
