State Senator Gretchen Whitmer of East Lansing has a plan that she says would make Michigan’s young people the best educated in the world.  She says her “Michigan 2020” proposal would send every high school graduate in Michigan on to college without raising taxes.  

To fund the initiative, her proposed bill would eliminate at least $1.8 billion in what she labels “special interest kickbacks.”   WKAR’s Mark Bashore asked her to cite some examples of the “tax breaks and loopholes” that would pay for the plan.
