Today on Current State: Michigan eliminates some administrative rules; a Port Lansing update; Impossible2Possible; the MSU Opera Theatre presentation of "The Magic Flute"; remembering JFK; and Silver Bells in the City.
This week, the Michigan Economic Development Corporation authorized a $3-million loan to Lansing-based Niowave, Incorporated. The particle acceleration company will leverage the funds to build a $200-million medical isotope production facility near the Capital Region International Airport. It’s planning its expansion around Port Lansing, the international logistics hub that’s been sprouting up around the airport over the last few years.
On this weekend before Thanksgiving, Lansing is again preparing to host its largest public outdoor event of the year. This is the 29th year for “Silver Bells in the City,” which features music, crafts and an electric light parade through the city’s downtown.
