Today on Stateside, on the same day the UAW announces that the new GM contract will be ratified, we hear from a Michigan plant that voted against the deal. Plus, the ban on baiting deer and how it will affect hunting in the state.

To help combat chronic wasting disease, Michigan is banning deer baiting and feeding across big parts of the state. It’s highly unpopular with some hunters and lawmakers.

But, banning bait will only slow CWD from spreading to new areas, and more aggressive approaches that might actually stop it could be just as unpopular.
