Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer delivers her State of the State address to a joint session of the House and Senate, Wednesday, Jan. 25, 2023, at the state Capitol in Lansing, Mich.

With the Inaugural, the swearing in of new and returning lawmakers and the State of the State address behind Lansing, the state Capitol is up and running in this new Legislative session. That means House and Senate sessions, committee hearings and the first bill signing of the legislative session. It’s a familiar cycle for those who know the state Capitol and that includes John Sellek, CEO of Harbor Strategic Public Affairs, Adrian Hemond, CEO of Grassroots Midwest, and Rick Pluta, Senior Capitol Correspondent of the Michigan Public Radio Network. They’re all here to dig into the week that was in Michigan politics.
