Obama, Gov. Snyder in the Spotlight
It’s our annual progress report. Tonight, President Obama and Gov. Rick Snyder will each address the Legislature in their annual State of the Union and State of the State addresses.
Snyder begins at 7 p.m. from the State Capitol in Lansing, followed by the Democratic response and a brief panel discussion, hosted by the Michigan Radio Network. The governor will lay out his new legislative year agenda, which includes beefing up skilled trades training and a sales tax increase to fix roads.
