Threats and violence are an issue at Secretary of State offices as wait times for those without appointments reached 52 minutes in 2019. Rep. Ann Bollin (R-Brighton Twp.) said she doesn't believe the increased security that Gov. Gretchen Whitmer put in her proposed budget is the answer. What is? Bollin also talks about how Michigan could speed up the counting of its absentee ballots so Michigan can avoid an Iowa Caucus-like vote-counting disaster this November.
Also Bob McCann from Cover Two Strategies and the Tri-County Alliance for Public Education joins Sara Wurfel from Truscott Rossman on Whitmer's State of the Union response, her education funding choices and why the budget presentation is more important than the State of the State address.
