Lessenberry on State of the Union, MSU, Gov. Engler, and Line 5

Jan 31, 2018

President Donald Trump delivered his first State of the Union address last night. He made references to the auto industry in Michigan and took credit for some jobs moving to the region.

Michigan Radio's Morning Edition host Doug Tribou and senior news analyst Jack Lessenberry discuss the parts of the speech relevant to Michigan residents.

They also talk about the Michigan State University Board of Trustees' choice to name Gov. John Engler as MSU's interim president, and Gov. Rick Snyder's rejection of a recommendation by his Pipeline Safety Advisory Board. The board urged Gov. Snyder to temporarily shut down Enbridge Energy's pipeline until it can be thoroughly inspected.
