Three Michigan State University football players have been charged with sexual assault.

Three Michigan State University football players have been charged with sexual assault stemming from an incident in January in which they allegedly sexually assaulted a woman on campus. 

Morning Edition host Doug Tribou and senior political analyst Jack Lessenberry discuss the this case and others, including former Olympic gymnastics and MSU sports doctor Larry Nassar.

They also talk about budget tensions between Governor Rick Snyder and legislative leaders over teacher pensions, Project Green Light, and Rep. Jeff Yaroch's proposal to create one legislative chamber.
