Thursday, December 13, 2012

As we near the end of a busy week in Michigan politics, Craig tries to keep it all together today on the show.

Michigan Public Radio Network's Rick Pluta checks in with the latest on fast-moving legislation at the state capitol. Among those bills is a series of laws that will change the way Michigan politicians can be recalled, and Jeff Guilfoyle of the Citizen's Research Council tells Craig how the laws could alter the way recall efforts move forward in the future. Representatives of the Michigan chapter of the ACLU and local literacy groups join Craig in studio to discuss the lawsuit they are bringing against the state and the Highland Park School District for failing to properly provide students with required literacy skills. A panel of Wayne State professors break down the complicated fiscal cliff debate that's raging in Washington, D.C. Author and productivity expert Geri Markel tells Craig how listeners can get everything done during the packed holiday season. And the Michigan Chronicle's Bankole Thompson wades through the city of Detroit's own fiscal cliff as the state considers emergency financial management for its largest city.
