State Attorney General Bill Schuette faced questions this week over whether the state's inquiry into Michigan State University's handling of the Larry Nassar scandal is truly independent. In a newly released letter regarding his appointment of Bill Forsyth to lead the investigation, Schuette says Forsyth will "serve under my direction and at my pleasure."

This Week in Review, Weekend Edition host Rebecca Kruth and senior news analyst Jack Lessenberry discuss Schuette's role in the investigation.

They also talk about potential budget reductions for universities that fail to meet standards to prevent campus sexual assault and harassment, the passage of bills to get rid of the state's driver responsibility fees, and a petition drive to put a voting rights question on the November ballot.
