Former Governor John Engler will donate his salary while serving as Michigan State University's interim president. Engler took over the role after Lou Anna Simon resigned amid criticism over MSU's handling of the Larry Nassar sexual abuse scandal.

Engler's appointment has drawn both praise and criticism. This Week in Review, Weekend Edition host Rebecca Kruth and senior news analyst Jack Lessenberry talk about how he's doing so far. 


They also discuss a new candidate in the race for Michigan's 13th Congressional District, scrapped plans for a mass transit system between Detroit and several surrounding counties, and a bill adopted by the state House that would make English the state's official language.
