Political Roundup with Ken Sikkema and Debbie Dingell
With the legislature set to go on winter break next week, there's a flurry of activity at the state capitol.
In this week's political roundup we look at the state senate bill, which makes major changes to worker’s compensation, the bill to restrict public employers from offering live in and same sex partner benefits, and news about the emergency manager law.
Michigan Radio's Jennifer White spoke with Ken Sikkema, former Senate Majority Leader and Senior Policy Fellow at Public Sector Consultants, and Debbie Dingell, political analyst and member of the Democratic National Committee.
