PUBLIC COMMENT 

Trustee Pelleran: As you all know the state legislator zeroed out the House budget and the House zeroed out the Senate budget.  It was an unprecedented move in the history of the Michigan state government.  That means that every item is negotiable in state budget and it will boiled down to six people making final decisions in conference committees.  If you have priorities take a moment and call your State Senator or State Representative, it is important to weigh in right now.  They are setting targets this week for every budget and they will report out the final state budget for the State of Michigan for the year 2006 - 2007 by the end of next week.
