Health benefits for family of Michigan state workers in doubt
Last month I lauded the recently granted "plus one" benefit scheme implemented for 35,000 Michigan state employees. Well, those benefits are in grave danger. The state senate has already overturned the decision to award these benefits. My thanks to the Alternatives to Marriage Project for alerting me to this grave situation. ATMP is urging everyone to contact the Michigan House before it's too late. No one is surprised that Gov. Rick Snyder takes a decidedly different approach than that of his predecessor, Jennifer Granholm. Let's hope he can be stopped.
