House Speaker Lee Chatfield says any executive order Gov. Gretchen Whitmer issues since May 1 is "legally questionable at best" since the Legislature did not extend her emergency authority April 30. So is he advising his residents to follow the Governor's executive orders? Chatfield is also asked about last week's protestors and what House session is going to look like going forward.

Also, Kathy Barks Hoffman of Martin Waymire and Josh Pugh of the AFL-CIO share their perspective on the "patriot" protests, how the Governor did with her response on the Joe Biden sexual harassment claim and Publisher John Reurink's idea of floating general obligation bonds to help the state stay afloat financially in the short term.
