Stateside: Tuesday, Feb. 28, 2023

Today, we heard from the chair of the Michigan Public Service Commission about what role oversight plays in the reliability of the electric grid. We also talked about how elected officials are responding to more frequent, prolonged power outages and extreme weather events. Then, we checked in on Van Buren Township, where a hazardous waste dump was set to receive contaminated soil from the train crash in East Palestine, Ohio. Plus, a look at a new comic centering the stories of Black queer icons.
