The State’s Board of Education can’t decide what to do about recent gun legislation. There are four Democrats and four Republicans on the board. Michigan Public Radio’s Cheyna Roth reports that means the board can’t come to an agreement on a public position on bills that loosen restrictions on guns in schools.
Concealed guns could be carried in schools, churches and other places they’re currently banned under bills adopted Wednesday by the state Senate. Michigan Public Radio’s Rick Pluta tells us the bills were adopted on largely party-line votes.
