LANSING, Mich. (AP) — A top Democratic lawmaker says Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s proposed 45-cents-a-gallon fuel tax increase is dead, and proposals such as raising the corporate income tax and taxing heavy trucks must be in the mix. House Minority Leader Christine Greig said Thursday that with majority Republicans vehemently opposing the 45-cent plan, there are alternative ways to raise revenue without having to increase the gas tax by as much.

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — A Michigan law school says it’s too expensive so it will cut tuition by 21% in fall 2020. Western Michigan University-Cooley Law School announced the reduction Thursday and said it will seek approval to close its Auburn Hills campus at the end of 2020. Tuition will be cut to $1,375 per credit hour from $1,750. A student needs 90 credits to graduate, meaning a Cooley education still would cost more than $120,000.
