Lawmakers are limited in the number of terms they can serve in Lansing by the state Constitution. Some say these limits lead to ineffective governing.

The Michigan House yesterday approved legislation that would allow faith-based adoption agencies that receive state money to turn away couples based on religious objections. Today, legislative Democrats introduced bills to overturn Michigan's same-sex marriage ban.

Susan Demas, publisher of Inside Michigan Politics, and James Dickson, op-ed editor for The Detroit News, join Jennifer White to talk about the politics behind these latest moves.
