Two of Rep. Phil Green’s major initiatives to help the Thumb – teacher retention and improved rural broadband – will receive additional resources through a budget plan approved by the Michigan Legislature.
Rep. Green talks about a House vote this week to approve the distribution of nearly $2.9 billion in federal funding to help unemployed Michigan residents support their families during the COVID-19 pandemic. The measure approved by the Michigan House will provide an additional $300 a week in unemployment benefits retroactive to Aug. 1.
