LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is scheduled to be featured on the opening night of next week’s Democratic National Convention. Whitmer will speak Monday during the four-day event, which will be virtual due to the coronavirus pandemic. She would move to Wednesday if Joe Biden selected her as his running mate. The first-term governor, who is on Biden’s short list, met with him in Delaware last week. Her profile grew nationally in the spring as she confronted the COVID-19 crisis. At the convention, Democrats will formally nominate the presidential ticket and also adopt a party platform and rules.

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has vetoed Republican-sponsored legislation that would have given additional health providers legal protection from lawsuits in any state-declared emergency and extended the immunity during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The Democrat said Monday she would have considered signing the bill if it only had attempted to “mop up” an issued created when the Legislature refused to lengthen the COVID-19 emergency. But she says the measure goes “much further” and would have given health facilities broad immunity in any emergency regardless of the circumstances. The legislation was supported by hospitals, doctors and nursing homes but opposed by plaintiffs’ lawyers.

UNDATED (AP) — The iconic summer job for high school and college students has been on the wane for nearly 20 years. But the pandemic is squeezing even more young people out of the workforce. Some are borrowing more money. Others have turned to pick-up jobs like Instacart, only to compete with older people who are similarly sidelined. A Drexel University education professor says summer work remains crucial for young people’s development, often leading to higher earnings and higher levels of education. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the unemployment rate for people ages 16 to 24 was 18.5% in July compared with 9.1% the same month last year.

LANSING, Mich (AP) — State investigators and contractors will this week start assessing the remaining portion of a failed Michigan dam. The failure of the Edenville dam and another barrier in May destroyed 150 houses and caused more than $200 million in damage to the Midland County area. The state said it took over the duty to assess Edenville after the owners failed to comply with a federal court order to look into what additional work might be needed to stabilize the dam and ensure the safety of nearby residents.
