Stateside for Monday, Feb. 17, 2014

Rona Romney McDaniel is building on her family's extensive political legacy. She is taking Terri Lynn Land's seat on the Republican National Committee. What does this mean for Michigan's profile? Michigan Public Radio Network Lansing Bureau Chief Rick Pluta joins us to discuss McDaniel's new position. 

Detroit's bankruptcy led to a lot of media coverage and support for the Detroit Institute of Arts, but what about other museums in the city? Detroit Free Press Columnist Rochelle Riley joins us today to talk about the ailing Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, and its potential demise due to Detroit's bankruptcy. 

Also, the Affordable Care Act hinges on enrolling young, healthy people to offset the costs of covering older Americans. Dizzy Warren from Enroll Michigan joins us. 

And when you think of solar energy, you think sunshine. So what happens when solar power meets a cold, snowy, cloudy area, like the Upper Peninsula? Sam Eggleston of the Upper Peninsula Second Wave joins us today to explore the possibilities.
