Some real passion came out in this hearing today.
Rep. Tom McMillin (R-Rochester Hills) was cut off at one point by the committee chairman after repeatedly asking the same question of State Superintendent Mike Flanagan.

Student loan debt totals more than $1 trillion. This is a HUGE percentage of loans not being paid back.
More than $89 billion in federal student loans are in default, a new analysis by the federal agency in charge of regulating lenders shows.

Big news for a quiet post-Fourth Friday.
The Michigan Supreme Court declined to issue an advisory opinion determining whether or not the state's right to work law violated the authority granted to the Civil Service Commission by the Michigan constitution.
