The University of Michigan has won a significant decision in a lawsuit challenging a campus ban on guns.

The state appeals court says the university can regulate the possession of guns. In a 2-1 opinion, the court says a 2001 ban doesn't violate the U.S. Constitution.

The court also says the Ann Arbor school and its other campuses aren't covered by a state law that prevents local governments from putting limits on guns.

Judge David Sawyer disagreed. He says the university is exceeding its authority by adopting its own restrictions.

Report explores future of green energy in Michigan

Green energy has made big strides in Michigan over the past several years. That’s thanks in large part to a 2008 law that required the state to get 10% of its energy from renewable sources by 2015.

The “10 by 2015” mandate is about to expire...and the state is on track to meet its goal.

But what happens next? Can Michigan continue its move toward renewables? Or will efforts to green the energy industry stall without a legislative mandate?
