For those who don’t have paid sick days, this type of law can be life-changing: it can make a world of difference for working women, single parents, and workers across the state.

This is a step in the right direction. However, the new legislators coming in next year need to recognize that investment in what makes our state great must continue. This isn’t the end of the road.
Michigan lawmakers, after working through the night, have approved plans for a statewide ballot proposal that could yield $1.2 billion a year in new funding for roads and bridges.

If burning tires is renewable energy, then candy corn is a vegetable.

Call your State Senator and tell her/him that hazardous waste is not renewable energy: http://1.usa.gov/1CZ2eFU

Corporate polluters are doing whatever it takes to maximize their profits — even redefining clean, renewable energy to include hazardous waste.

The disingenuous claim by partisans on the left and on the right that a truly neutral, nonpartisan district does not and cannot exist is exactly the kind of noise that will be spread far and wide if a proposal for redistricting reform ever makes it to the ballot.

ICYMI: Under House Bill 5205, burning hazardous waste like trash and tires would be classified as renewable energy. If burning tires is renewable energy, then candy corn is a vegetable.

This is bill is not a solution to our crumbling roads and bridges. The bill robs Peter to pay Paul by diverting revenue that should be going to our already under-funded schools and cities.
Lawmakers have two more weeks of lame duck session to get this done

"People may want to blame last winter's weather for the rapid deterioration of our roads. However, the weather simply exposed the real problem. Our state has been disinvesting in roads for years."
Survey says more than 1,900 miles of roadway need to be rebuilt.

In Michigan, over the last decade, state legislators have cut funding for public colleges and universities by more than 19 percent, forcing many schools to double their tuition. Many students now must choose between going to college and facing the crushing burden of load debt or forgo a degree entirely.
In Michigan, 63% of those who go to college borrow money to go to school, a new report shows.
