Today on Current State: the local impact of the government shutdown; a documentary about Michigan craft beers; the All of the Above Hip Hop Academy; and WKAR-TV's "Quizbusters" celebrates 25 years on the air.
As we enter the second day of a partial government shutdown, it’s still uncertain just how much impact this will have across the state and locally. One thing is certain, however. The longer this continues, the greater the effects will be. More than 40% of the state’s budget comes from the federal government. In the Tri-County area, there are many non-profits and government programs that rely on federal funding.
On this week's Neighbors in Action segment we feature the All of the Above Hip Hop Academy. The organization provides youth the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of hip hop through mentorship, while building a Hip Hop community in Lansing.
