Today on Current State: Right to Work and Lansing teachers, Michigan's depleting groundwater, new exhibits at the Broad Art Museum and its founding director on the first three months, and home court advantage with The Izzone.
In five weeks, Michigan’s so-called Right to Work law takes effect. Some local Michigan teacher unions are working to lock in new contracts before then. In some cases, it’s an effort to delay the impact of the controversial new law since it will not include contracts already in place by March 27, when it takes effect.
The Great Lakes’ record-low water levels are rightly receiving all of the attention now, but evidence is growing that Michigan’s fragile groundwater resources are quietly becoming a concern for the future.
Robert Glennon, professor of law and public policy at the University of Arizona and author of “Unquenchable: America’s Water Crisis and What to do About It,” knows Michigan well and shares his insights.
Now that it’s been open for a few months, it’s time for the Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University to change things up. Some inaugural exhibits are departing, and three new exhibits go on display this Friday.
WKAR’s Scott Pohl talks with the museum’s curator of contemporary art, Alison Gass, about what’s new at the Broad.
