Michigan Earns Another "A"

Contact: John Truscott (517) 335-6397

Governor Engler announced today that the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) awarded Michigan an "A" for holding down government spending. Only four other states – New Hampshire, Nevada, South Dakota and Florida – earned the top grade for keeping spending at low levels compared to other states.

"Good policy and good government produce good grades," said Governor Engler. "The result is good news for the people of Michigan. "

"Michigan earns an A, a marked improvement from 1990," notes the ALEC National Report Card on State Fiscal Policy. The complete report is available at the ALEC web page, alec.org.
