1/7/16: Flint Water Emergency / Gun Control / DPS Debt / Headlines

Posted by MiWeek Editor on

Happy New Year! The MiWeek team is back with a look at the stories making news across Michigan and the nation:

  • Flint Water Emergency – Governor Snyder has declared Flint’s water crisis a state of emergency. Plus, he apologized over the holidays and the head of the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality resigned. But is that enough? The MiWeek team debates whether more action – even a federal investigation – is warranted.
  • Gun Control – President Obama’s executive order relating to gun control is being hotly debated across the country. Will these stricter rules help reduce gun violence?
  • DPS Debt – A new report by the Citizens Research Council of Michigan paints a bleak picture of the Detroit Public Schools finances. It shows the district has a total debt of about $3.5 billion and DPS admits it will run out of cash in April. The MiWeek team examines the options available for the district.
