Michigan lawmakers this week will consider a bill that would make it easier for high school students to learn about careers they may want to pursue.

State Rep. Beau LaFave, R-Iron Mountain, says his bill would give high school credit to students who complete an internship during their junior or senior years.

LaFave says his bill will cut through existing red tape that discourages high school students from exploring careers while still in school. 

“This is going to help I think with retention and graduation completion,” says LaFave.
