Granholm: Good news on Mich. jobs but also cuts

By KATHY BARKS HOFFMAN, Associated Press Writer

LANSING, Feb. 3, 2009 (AP): Gov. Jennifer Granholm says Michigan's struggling economy is growing more diversified, with new jobs cropping up in movie studios, solar panel plants and centers where electric car batteries are being designed.

But she also warned Tuesday during her seventh annual State of the State address that Michigan will see its economy falter even more and state government struggle to make ends meet in the year ahead.

Granholm says she wants to cut the budget by getting rid of a variety of state departments, closing two state fairs and cutting elected officials' salaries by 10 percent.

She also wants to make the state more ``green'' by encouraging utilities to invest in energy conservation rather than new coal-fired electric plants.
