Snyder: Budget deal is close, but some issues unresolved

LANSING, MI (AP) -

Gov. Rick Snyder says he and Republican legislative leaders are close to brokering a budget agreement, with a "fairly short list" of issues left to be resolved.

The Republican governor left a closed-door meeting at the Capitol Tuesday morning and reported "good progress." Snyder says the budget and talks about restructuring Detroit's ailing school district are "two separate issues."

The House and Senate are at odds over how much to spend on Detroit Public Schools and regulating charter schools in the city. Budget issues to hash out include repealing an inadvertent tax credit awarded to auto insurers and spending on underground infrastructure statewide in the wake of Flint's water crisis.

House Speaker Kevin Cotter says negotiators are "very, very close" to finalizing spending levels for segments of the budget.
