Stateside: Friday, June 23, 2023

Today on Stateside, we discussed a Wisconsin-based tribe’s recent judicial success in working to restore sovereignty over their land, and its effect on the Enbridge Line 5. Then, what the process of "unwinding" Medicaid is looking like, and the potential economic benefits of the Drive SAFE bill package, which would allow undocumented immigrants to get a drivers license. Plus, a story from Italy with roots in Michigan — an opera singer's journey from Arkansas to Detroit to Milan.
