Stateside for Thursday, July 10, 2014

  Today on Stateside:

·         In just three years, the number of Michigan cities and school districts run by state-appointed emergency managers has ballooned, from six to 17. We took a close look at Michigan emergency manager law.

·         Mark Schauer is the Democrat who wants to be your next governor. Rick Pluta and Zoe Clark, the co-hosts of Michigan Radio’s It’s Just Politics were here on Stateside to tell us more.

·         A new appraisal of the Detroit Institute of Arts collection has found the works could be worth between $2.7 billion and $4.6 billion! That's a big difference from the $866 million value that Christie's put on the collection last fall. Detroit News’ Daniel Howes explained what the implication is.

·         How Northern Michigan water is an inspiration for writers.

·         The latest "report card" on jobs in America points to a country continuing to recover from the Great Recession. We had a labor economist from University of Michigan to tell us what he saw in the June labor report.

·         We wrap up our week-long review of the new $53 billion state budget. Today: the money for "law and order."
