Domestic Violence and Pets

Recently I started volunteering at an animal shelter nearby. One of their most important outreach programs is helping women who are suffering from domestic violence who can't or refuse to leave their pets. Many shelters are now implementing programs where they take in dogs for periods of times for women to escape a dangerous environment. This article discusses that not only animal shelters are helping this issue, but shelters for women suffering domestic violence are now allowing pets as well.

$400M shift to Michigan...

$400M shift to Michigan roads would impact other spending To help pave Michigan's deteriorating roads and fix its bridges, the Republican-led Legislature has passed a state spending plan that would shift $400 million in discretionary general funds to the transportation budget despite opposition from Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. After reading this article, I found it interesting seeing how the state planned to allocate funds into Michigan's infrastructure budget from other crucial spending sectors. I was wondering if you guys think this budget plan makes sense!

Michigan's broken roads and the broken state budget

Everyone agrees that the roads in Michigan are in terrible condition—but how to fund repairing the state’s broken infrastructure has never been more contentious—so contentious, in fact, that disagreement between Democratic Governor Whitmer and the Republican controlled House over this issue may lead to a Michigan government shutdown if a budget is not passed by Oct 1.  The impact this could have on all of us makes this issue more urgent than ever.
