Lawmakers to vote on Common Core

"After months of debate, lawmakers are poised to vote on whether Michigan should continue implementing more rigorous education standards known as Common Core. The House Education Committee today plans to consider a resolution letting the state put in place new uniform math and reading standards," the Associated Press reports.

 Bills move forward to allow faith-based agencies to refuse to process adoptions

"A state House panel has approved legislation to allow faith-based adoption agencies to refuse to place children with a family based on a religious objection. Instead, an agency would have to refer a qualified family to an adoption office that would handle the placement," Rick Pluta reports.
