Speaker of the House Lee Chatfield met with local superintendents from the 107th District in his Capitol office after he successfully fought to restore critical funding for rural school districts following the governor’s budget cuts in October. Several northern Michigan schools were affected by the cuts and faced significant shortfalls until Chatfield and the Legislature restored the funding in December.
