Tonight on MiWeek:

  • Mackinac Policy Conference - Detroit Regional Chamber President & CEO Sandy Baruah is our guest in the studio to talk about next week's Mackinac Policy Conference. The MiWeek team talks with him about the themes for this year's conversation and the guest speakers. They also analyze what should come out of the conference.
  • Retaining Michigan Businesses - Dow Chemical is being wooed by other states to move their business and workers out of Michigan. The MiWeek team debates what Michigan needs to do to retain and attract businesses, as well as whether the state's current incentives are enough.
  • Headlines - The MiWeek team discusses some of the most interesting news headlines this week: Actress Melissa Gilbert drops out of Congressional race; the state legislature debates a bill that would fine panhandlers for being too aggressive; and the Detroit Police Department challenges other city police departments to a dance-off.
