Rep. Frederick talks about his new amendment to the Michigan Constitution, which would require the passage of the state’s Fiscal Year budget on July 1, three full months before the start of the Fiscal Year on October 1.  Rep. Frederick is the former Mayor of Owosso and says timely completion of a state spending plan is very important to local officials.  The Representative points out that it was only 10 years ago that lawmakers were missing the October 1 budget deadline.  The plan would need to be approved by Michigan voters in 2018.
