Stateside for Tuesday, May 13, 2014

Things aren't going so hot when it comes to school finances in Michigan.

The state has basically run out of money to loan to struggling schools through 2018. The reason is because so many districts need help.

Today, we'll hear how we got to this point and what could be done to change the way schools use and receive state funds.

Then young people are not only driving less than teens did a generation ago, they aren't even getting licenses. We'll find out what driving less means for the auto industry and the future of how we get around.

First up, Detroit Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr was in Lansing today. He testified before the newly-formed House Committee on Detroit's Recovery and Michigan's Future.
