  • Money Rolling In, But Cities With Hands Out to Lansing Claim 'Broken' Finances

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 5/28/2016 | Tom Gantert
    A lobbyist organization funded by local governments held a press conference in the state Capitol this week to urge lawmakers to send its members more in state taxpayer dollars. The event took place as legislators are preparing to pass a state budget for next year, and was cast as an invitation to discuss how local government funding is “broken.” Given that message, it may seem ironic that the host city of Lansing collected more tax dollars than it expected for a third straight year and had a surplus. The group is called the Michigan Municipal League, and its members want...

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 8/8/2015 | Jonathan Moy
    The Lansing School District is considering privatizing custodial services. The Lansing State Journal first reported the development in mid-July, and July 29 was the deadline for service providers to submit bids. With almost 12,000 students, Lansing is one of the state’s largest school districts. In Michigan and around the country, privatizing custodial services has saved school districts money. For example, the rural Ludington school district saved $150,000, about $67 per student. Lansing’s neighbor, the Okemos Public Schools, saved $600,000 — or $150 per student. If it follows through, the Lansing district will join nearly 260 others across Michigan that have...

    The Michigan Education Association is directing people to a website that insults and vilifies a 37-year member who authored a widely distributed letter explaining why she wants to leave the state’s largest teachers union. Lansing School District teacher Mary Davenport wrote a letter that was sent to thousands of teachers to alert them that if they want to quit the union it would only allow them to do so in the month of August. Many teachers have complained about this so-called August window. Since Davenport’s letter was distributed, the website has invited union members to respond online. The website...

    State Sen. Rick Jones, R-Grand Ledge, was on the Senate floor Thursday when he learned of a “sweetheart” deal between the Lansing School District and the president of the state’s largest teachers union. The district has for several years allowed Michigan Education Association President Steve Cook to be considered a “school employee.” This lets Cook remain a member of the public school pension system, despite the fact that he actually works full time for a private organization. Moreover, Cook is accruing pension benefits based on his $201,613 union salary, setting him up for a much higher post-retirement payout from the...

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 2/15/2015 | Jarrett Skorup
    For the first decade of the 21st century, the Michigan Legislature’s policy direction was to increase the power of government at the expense of citizens. The results were predictable to those who understand incentives and how economies really work. From 2001-2010, compensation costs for the average state employee increased tremendously, while incomes plummeted for the taxpayers who pay those bills. When state revenues stagnated, the Legislature took more from individuals and small businesses through higher income and business taxes, and increased excise taxes on goods like tobacco. Rather than enact real business-climate reforms that encourage investment and entrepreneurship, legislators turned...

    Republican victories in the US midterm elections in early November and the Saudi Arabia-imposed decision by Opec on Nov. 27 to maintain production at 30 million barrels of oil a day may seem too disconnected and tangential to merit deep consideration of any linkage. But the two political events actually illustrate the slowly diverging paths between the US and Saudi Arabia that could become too entrenched to redirect, and may ultimately destroy or at least permanently alter one of the most important remaining strategic constants in the world since 1945 — America's security guarantee of Saudi Arabia and its energy...

    Don’t skateboard at Kroger – it’s against the rules. Bringing food from outside the store is also strictly prohibited. And please don’t think about grocery shopping at one of the 50 or so Kroger grocery stores in Michigan without a shirt: you run the risk of being asked to leave. But, if you’d like to peruse the produce aisles with a semi-automatic rifle slung across your shoulder, go right ahead. Kroger thinks that’s just fine in states where it is legal to openly carry guns, like Michigan. In fact, the grocery store chain has publicly stated that it doesn’t want...

So, like confused cattle, our uneasy line of air travelers was herded through the machine. But my experience today was nothing compared to...
