Stateside for Wednesday, May 6, 2015

Today on Stateside:

Proposal 1 was struck down yesterday, leaving much of the state to wonder what comes next. Stateside’s Cynthia Canty talks with It’s Just Politics hosts Zoe Clark and Rick Pluta about what we might see down the road.

Senator David Knezek, D-Taylor, talks with us about new legislation that could help protect veterans with service animals from discrimination and bring Michigan into compliance with the federal Americans with Disabilities Act.

Michigan author Maureen Abood has come home to preach the culinary gospel of wonderful Lebanese food in her firstcookbook.

The Michigan Department of Transportation has been honored with a Governor's Award for Historic Preservation. We talk with MDOT's staff archeologist about work done with the M-231 project in Ottawa County.

Detroit’s Blight Task Force estimates it will cost almost $2 billion to demolish blighted structures in the area, and even more money will be needed to repurpose the sites. Some lessons in tackling the blight might be learned from New Orleans’ experience after Hurricane Katrina.

Stateside is produced daily by a dedicated group of producers and production assistants. Listen daily, on-air, at 3 and 8 p.m., or subscribe to the daily podcast wherever you like to listen.
