At the end of every month, Current State takes a few minutes to review all that’s worth reviewing in state government and politics. 

We’ll look back at a turbulent August that included a controversial state capitol sex scandal, dashed hopes that the state could make progress on road funding and the impact on Michigan of the federal ‘Clean Power Plan.’ Our guests include John Lindstrom, who keeps a close eye on the capitol as publisher at Gongwer News in Lansing, and Detroit Free Press reporter Paul Egan.
