@GovWhitmer said @JoeBiden mandate concerns her: “We’re an employer too, the state of MI. I know if that mandate happens, we’re going to lose state employees. That’s why I haven’t proposed a mandate. We have a lot of the same concerns...it’s going to be a problem for all of us."

PUBLIC INFORMATION? Nonprofits are legally required to produce their tax filings for inspection to anyone who shows up at their office. Today, a nonprofit told me I could not take photos of the filings unless I paid $33 for copies. I had the $, but what if someone doesn't?

Last week, 19.6% of Michigan's #COVID19 tests tracked by the state health department were positive. That's the highest weekly percentage since the early months of the pandemic when we were doing a lot less testing.

I want to tell you about my visit to St. Joseph’s Hospital this morning after the warnings I’ve gotten from health leaders across the state: As COVID cases in Michigan soar, our hospitals are filling up & health workers simply don’t have the staff or resources they need.
