At the state capitol yesterday, Michigan’s latest set of revenue estimates were unveiled. It’s an important twice-a-year gathering with often serious implications for state government spending, budgets and taxes.

Current State host Mark Bashore spoke with the Michigan Public Radio Network’s state capitol bureau chief Rick Pluta.

Pluta says the key players are the directors of the House and Senate Fiscal Agencies, and the State Treasurer. The state Budget Director is also part of the process.
