LANSING, Mich. — Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Jim Stamas, R-Midland, on Wednesday outlined his legislation to provide $6 million in critical flood relief funding to communities in the Gladwin and Midland areas and to use $2.9 billion in federal funding for President Trump’s $300 per week unemployment support.
During his address to the Senate, Stamas thanked Rep. Annette Glenn, R-Midland, for her leadership and hard work to help their communities recover and rebuild following devastating flood damage in May.
After Stamas’ remarks, the Senate unanimously approved Senate Bill 745, which also includes $3 million for Detroit flood response and $8 million for Michigan’s contribution to an Asian carp barrier at Brandon Road Lock in Illinois.
The bill now heads to the governor to be signed.
