LANSING (WWJ) – A controversial proposal in Lansing would cut funding for colleges that give benefits to same-sex partners. 

Working on the budget last week, House Republicans added to the higher education bill a five percent cut in state funding for universities if they do not agree to stop providing employee benefits same-sex partners.

“It’s the kind of stuff this Governor simply does not want to deal with,” said WWJ Lansing Bureau Chief Tim Skubick.

Skubick asked Gov. Rick Snyder if he supports the proposed cut.

“We are going to look all the different proposals from all the various budgets. We had our proposal, we said our piece on the budget and now we are going to compare what happened in the House and Senate,” said Snyder.

Gov. Snyder said that this particular cut was not part of his recommendations.

    It never ceases to amaze and disgust me what lengths our government will go to disrupt the private lives of citizens.
