The Michigan Legislature has approved spending $24.7 million on 69 recreational development and land purchase projects around Michigan in 2015, including funding for the planned Iron Belle Trail from Ironwood to Detroit and several projects in Gogebic County.
Legislation that the Senate approved Thursday authorizes Natural Resources Trust Fund projects. Funding comes from earnings on the sale and lease of publicly owned mineral rights.
Gov. Rick Snyder is expected to sign the bill.
