LANSING (WWJ) – It seems a good portion of that newly found state budget surplus will be going back into funding public education in Michigan.

While Governor Snyder’s initial budget included a proposed cut to school districts of approximately $300-per pupil, it looks like some relief could be coming soon.

Michigan Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville of Monroe spoke with WWJ about the budget surplus: “The governor started off with a $300 cut, I think it is  probably going to end up being a $100 cut,” says Richardville.

A final agreement on education funding is expected within the next week in Lansing.
