On Page 13 in the current issue of Michigan Capitol Confidential (November/December 2009), a roll call vote accompanying the article "Balancing Act" was not labeled properly.

The article describes a vote in the Legislature to reduce K-12 spending by less than 3 percent. The Michiganvotes.org roll call description of how lawmakers voted identifies correctly those lawmakers who were not willing to make this cut by using a title that says "Lawmakers who voted AGAINST a cut of less than 3 percent to the K-12 school aid payments..."

Unfortunately, a similar title was not used on the top of the vote box to correctly identify those lawmakers who voted IN FAVOR of making the 3 percent cut.

Michigan Capitol Confidential would like to apologize to its readers and those lawmakers who were not properly credited for their vote to restrain state spending. We would also like to thank the office of state Rep. Tom McMillin, R-Rochester Hills, for bringing this matter to our attention. The corrected version of the vote box appears below.
