*Elimination of School Aid Fund Subsidy


**Gambling Addiction Revenue




*The Granholm Administration recommended eliminating a large component of this subsidy.  The legislature modified her request only slightly to date.  Indeed, as of April 26, 2004 the GF subsidy to the School Aid Fund has been cut by $138,600,000.

**Gambling Addiction in the Community Health budget receives funding from a number of sources (existing casinos, for instance) that can and should be redirected to the GF/GP component of the state budget.
