Approval by the Senate budget panel follows last week’s vote for the transfer by the House Appropriations Committee and is the final approval needed for the MSF Board’s $250 million grant to be awarded to the Flint & Genesee Economic Alliance, a division of the Flint & Genesee Group. The funding will support the organization’s efforts to purchase land needed to fill out the 1,000-acre AMD.
