LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has signed into law a $106 million plan to provide relief to businesses and fund efforts to fight the economic impact of the coronavirus. Though the plan was a collaborative effort between the governor and the legislature, Whitmer told reporters on Tuesday that the legislature strayed from the original and the $465 million plan that was sent to her desk had been cut. Unemployment benefits will be extended from 20 weeks to 26 weeks through the end of March. But Whitmer used a line-item veto to get rid of a $220 million allocation that would have helped businesses fund unemployment benefits.

UNDATED (AP) — About 71,000 people have received the first of two rounds of coronavirus vaccinations in Michigan, where more than 483,000 virus cases have been confirmed. Pfizer and Moderna vaccines have already been distributed to hospitals, local health departments and tribal health clinics. The state says residents and staff at skilled nursing homes began receiving the Moderna vaccine on Monday. Michigan’s Department of Health and Human Services says it has received 231,075 doses of both vaccines. On Tuesday, Michigan confirmed another 3,414 cases and 193 deaths, taking the total cases in the state to 483,922 and deaths to 12,282.

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — The Michigan Supreme Court has upheld a law that gives public money to private schools to comply with health and safety orders. The court’s decision was a 3-3 tie. A tie means an opinion in favor of private schools by the state appeals court will stand. At issue was whether more than $5 million approved by lawmakers during Gov. Rick Snyder’s administration conflicts with the Michigan Constitution. That document says “no public monies or property” can be used to “aid or maintain” private schools. Three Republican justices say the money is OK because it’s not for “educational services” in private schools.

LOCKPORT TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — A police cruiser has been stolen and wrecked in southwestern Michigan by a 25-year-old woman who slipped from handcuffs after being arrested earlier for drunken driving. Authorities say the woman had been taken into custody about 3 a.m. Monday after a crash in Lockport Township. She was placed in the rear seat of a St. Joseph sheriff’s office vehicle. After getting free of the handcuffs, she climbed through a partition and into the driver’s seat as deputies searched her vehicle. The sheriff’s office said she drove off in the cruiser but struck a utility pole and several trees. She was caught after trying to run away. She was jailed on numerous charges. Lockport Township is north of Michigan’s state line with Indiana.
