LANSING (WWJ) – A portion of the state’s budget surplus is reportedly going to be used to hire 1,000 police officers in the state.

WWJ Lansing Bureau Chief Tim Skubick said Michigan attorney general Bill Schuette cannot spend the money.

Instead, Schuette is trying to get legislative approval that will call for using $100 million of the state’s $500 million dollar surplus to hire additional officers.

Skubick said Detroit may be a winner in this process, and Detroit Police Chief Ralph Godbee is scheduled to be in Lansing Wednesday morning for the announcement.

The Governor has not signed off on this proposal and there is some question as to the direction these funds will go – some speculating that it will go into the ‘rainy day’ fund to pay down Michigan’s debt.

    Where do you currently rseide(live eat, sleep, drink, potty?)? That defines a permanent rseident. If you do all that in S.C. then you had best get to the DMV and get a new DL and RO. If you are the new titled owner but you haven’t signed the title then you haven’t actually purchased the vehicle as of yet unless you have a bill of sale in your hand. Even if you move back to MI you need to have your current information correct now. IF you were to get pulled over for any minor thing right now you would be facing over $ 500.00 in fines for not having a valid RO and your DL being incorrect.Momma_Bear
