Protesters inside of the Capitol building Thursday had a particular focus: asking Republican leaders to end Governor Whitmer's coronavirus emergency declaration hours before it was set to expire.

Today on Stateside, protesters once again gathered at Michigan's Capitol to protest Governor Whitmer's stay at home order while lawmakers and the governor clashed over her emergency powers. Plus, one Detroit business owner talks about the challenges of making a federal small business loan work for her 100-plus employee bakery.
