Stateside for Monday, August 31, 2015
Today on Stateside:
- After more than two weeks, an internal state House report is out with the results of an investigation looking into allegations of misconduct by state Reps. Todd Courser and Cindy Gamrat. Zoe Clark and Rick Pluta sit down with us to talk about the findings from the report.
- For years now, when state leaders talk about school funding changes, it’s almost inevitable that someone will say, “What about the money from the Lottery? Isn’t that supposed to fund the schools?” MLive’s Kyle Feldscher breaks down the question.
- What does it mean to be “civically engaged?” The answer you give can be very different depending upon your age. Chelsea Martin talks with us today about how volunteering can be a right of passage.
- A century or two ago, feral dogs roamed the streets of Detroit, people lived in fear of rabies, and the dog catcher prowled the streets scooping up strays. Historian Bill Loomis tells us about “The History of Dogs in Detroit.”
- Dr. Mark Schlissel joins us today to talk about financial aid, sexual misconduct, diversity, athletics culture, and his first year as the University of Michigan’s president.
