Lead in text: 
Governor Rick Snyder included more funding for state preschools in his budgetary plan today. According to Bridge Magazine, the governor suggested raising another 130 million dollars for preschool programs in the state, with a long term plan of spending about 240 million total by fiscal year 2015. Snyder said some of that money should go toward helping low-income families pay for preschool.
