Lt. Gov. Brian Calley goes deeper into his part-time legislature idea with MIRS Publisher John Reurink. How much does he think it will cost? Who is making the operational decisions? What role will Calley have in the day-to-day operations? What does his wife, Rep. Julie Calley, think of it all? Calley answers these and other questions.
Also, the MIRS team discusses whether Gov. Rick Snyder is prepared to forego his streak of six budgets finished in June in defense of keeping the teacher pension system open to new hires? Why did Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan make his speech on race at the Detroit Chamber event on Mackinac Island as opposed to the city of Detroit and does Calley embracing a part-time legislature make him the "change" candidate?
