This week in Michigan politics, some Republican legislators led by Senator Mike Shirkey pushed to impose work requirements for Medicaid recipients. Republicans also campaigned hard against a ballot initiative that would fight political gerrymandering and seeks to establish an independent commission to draw district lines.

Ken Sikkema, Senior Policy Fellow with Public Sector Consultants and the former Republican majority leader in state senate, and Vicki Barnett, a former Mayor of Farmington Hills and a former Democratic legislator joined Stateside to weigh in on the week’s issues.

Listen above.
