Differences Emerge In Early State Budget Plans 4-25-2011

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder is hoping lawmakers wrap up work on the next state budget by May 31.
That would be far earlier than in recent years when budget negotiations have stretched until the Oct. 1 start of the new fiscal year.
Lawmakers have made significant progress on the budget already.
The Republican governor has allies in the GOP-controlled House and Senate. But Republican legislative leaders won't simply rubber stamp the budget plan Snyder presented in February.
Differences have emerged in spending plans for education, prisons, a safety net for the poor and other areas.
Lawmakers say the budget plans are a work in progress and may change before the full House and Senate vote on them.
Snyder says the back-and-forth with lawmakers is "part of the process."
