Stateside for Wednesday, March 6th, 2013

The Affordable Care Act requires that most Americans carry some form of health insurance beginning next January or pay a fee.

And by October 1, 2013, states need to have health care exchanges in place where consumers can buy the required insurance.  What would it mean for Michigan to partner with Uncle Sam in running this exchange?

For that answer, we spoke with Helen Levy. Levy is a research associate professor at the Institute for Social Research, the Gerald Ford School of Public Policy, and the School of Public Health at the University of Michigan.

The state Supreme Court is back in action this week. We speak with one columnist who isn't so happy with Governor Snyder's recent appointment of a male judge to replace former Justice Diane Hathaway. Does gender matter on the state's highest court?

And then, we'll take a look at the business side of classical music. What’s the future like for the Detroit Symphony Orchestra? We talked with Paul Hogle, the Executive Vice President of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.
