Right now at the state capitol, several hearings are underway.
First up is a House committee hearing on Blue Cross Blue Shield. Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette is set to testify. The state Senate has already voted in favor of changing the insurance provider into a non-profit mutual insurance company.
One senior citizen groups complains this legislation would eventually shove seniors out of their Blue Cross coverage, but the company says that's not true.
The governor does not believe the current school system is producing career ready students, which is why he asked Lansing Attorney Richard McLellan to re-do the school aid formula to redirect current funding into areas wear student and teaches can excel.
His school recommendations included:
$2500 finish school early
Year round urban schools
Aid linked to performance
"You'll drive improvements if you link more of the money to performance. We dont measure performance, we measure attendance," said McLellan.
The year round school year would not expand the number of school days, but stretch out the process to run for the entire year with two week breaks in the fall, the holidays and the spring and summer.
Lawmakers and the education community are reviewing the draft, but some school lobbyists have denounced it as creating a voucher system and the ideas lack quality control.
McLellan is asking everyone to take the next month to comment on the draft. The final document may find its way into the governor's school budget in February.
