The Senate version of the General Government budget for the fiscal year that begins Oct. 1, 2014, which funds the legislature, the executive office, Attorney General, Secretary of State, Treasury, Department of Civil Rights, the Department of Technology, Management, and Budget, and various other state agencies. This would appropriate $4.717 billion in gross spending (of which $689.1 million is federal money), compared to $4.458 billion the previous year. $1.224 billion of this budget is paid out in revenue sharing to local governments, compared to $1.117 billion the previous year. After watering it down in the past two budgets, in this budget the Senate abandons a reform instituted by Gov. Rick Snyder in 2011 requiring local governments to meet specified "best practices" to get the full revenue sharing amount.
