Last Updated by MiWeek Editor on

Tonight on MiWeek:

  • Great Lakes Funding - The MiWeek team looks at the fallout from President Trump's proposed budget cuts in programs that help the Great Lakes. We'll also look at a Great Lakes Now video about the restoration of Lake Erie wetlands.

  • School Closings - State schools slated to close for under performing may get a reprieve after Superintendent Brian Whiston proposes a "partnership agreement." The MiWeek team debates this new plan to keep the schools open. 

  • State of Wayne County - Wayne County Executive Warren Evans gives his State of the County address and one of the major topics is the unfinished jail site. The MiWeek team talks about the proposals that are in play to develop the new jail.

  • Affordable Care Act - The MiWeek team takes a closer look at the debate in Washington over the repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act.
