Snyder Celebrates Muskegon Heights School Debt Relief

MUSKEGON, Mich., Dec. 18, 2023 —  Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed House Bill 4292, a supplemental budget bill today. Among the provisions in the bill was funding to relieve the outstanding school debt of Muskegon Heights Public School District. After the signing, state Rep. Will Snyder (D-Muskegon) issued the following statement:

“Never have I been more proud to work on behalf of Muskegon County than this past week. The supplemental spending bill includes over $31 million to pay off debt in the Muskegon Heights Public School District. This is a huge victory not only for  Muskegon Heights, but also for all of Muskegon County. The debt has been an issue our community has been working toward solving for over a decade. Being able to erase not only the state bonded emergency debt, but also the locally bonded debt will have such a profound impact not only on the educational system, but on the ability for prosperous economic development in Muskegon Heights. This isn’t merely erasing numbers; it’s providing hope, empowering educators and prioritizing children.”
