State Representative Jeff Irwin sees some things to be excited about in the Governor's budget proposal, but funding for K-12 education is not one of them.

The Democrat from Ann Arbor says restoring about $100 in per-pulpil state funding doesn't go far enough to replace cuts made in 2011.

Irwin says he was glad to see higher education getting a 6.1 %  increase in state funding, and he likes that the Governor is moving forward to make dental care more accessible for low-income kids.
