LANSING, Mich. (AP) — The leader of the Michigan House says an indicted lawmaker will continue to have no committee assignments or staff under his watch after a jury acquitted him of lying to the FBI and deadlocked on attempted extortion and bribery charges. A spokesman for House Speaker Lee Chatfield said Wednesday that “nothing has changed” with the status of Rep. Larry Inman. Inman was charged in May with seeking a bribe from a labor union in exchange for a vote to not overturn Michigan’s prevailing wage law. Inman and Chatfield, both Republicans, met Wednesday, a day after the trial concluded.

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) — Federal officials have told The Associated Press that they’ve reached a $245 million deal to continue cleaning up a polluted Michigan river. The Environmental Protection Agency and the Justice Department negotiated the settlement with NCR Corp. It was filed in federal court Wednesday. The company was among several whose paper mills dumped toxic PCBs into the Kalamazoo River from the 1950s to the 1970s. Cleanup has been underway for more than 20 years. The deal with NCR will pay for cleanup of floodplain soils and dredging of river sediments. It also will remove an aging dam in Allegan County.

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan’s Legislature is poised to vote to legalize sports betting and internet gambling.

Michigan will become the 20th state to authorize sports wagers and the fifth to allow casino-style games to be played online.
