TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) — A Michigan agency is hearing from both sides in the debate over a proposed oil pipeline tunnel in a Great Lakes channel. The state Public Service Commission held an online public hearing Monday on Enbridge’s plan to place a segment of its Line 5 in a tunnel that would be built beneath the Straits of Mackinac. The straits connects Lake Huron and Lake Michigan. The new line would replace twin pipes that have lain across the bottom of the straits since 1953. Supporters say the project would create jobs and protect supplies to refineries and users of propane. Opponents say it’s unnecessary and would damage the local environment while contributing to global warming.

DETROIT (AP) — Officials say a young woman who had been declared dead was discovered still alive at a Detroit funeral home. A lawyer hired by Timesha Beauchamp’s family says she opened her eyes as she was about to be embalmed. The bizarre events occurred Sunday in Southfield, Michigan, where first responders spent 30 minutes trying to revive the 20-year-old woman. The body was released to Beauchamp’s family. But then came a startling discovery at the James H. Cole funeral home: Beauchamp was still alive more than an hour later. Attorney Geoffrey Fieger says staff would have “begun draining her blood.” Beauchamp is in critical condition at a hospital.

YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) — Eastern Michigan University is keeping residence halls closed until at least mid-September. President James Smith says the risk of spreading the coronavirus is “quite serious” as the Labor Day weekend holiday approaches. Other schools around Michigan are cautiously welcoming students to campus. Students are moving into dorms this week at the University of Michigan and Grand Valley State University. Michigan Technological University in the Upper Peninsula began the annual ritual last week. Meanwhile, the state health department reported 868 new virus cases and four additional deaths Monday, raising the death toll since spring to 6,397.

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan’s budget outlook is not as bad as was thought — thanks to federal pandemic relief aid, higher consumer spending and tax payments than expected, and a quicker recovery by the auto industry. In May, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s administration and legislative economists projected a combined $6.3 billion shortfall in two main funds over two year. They revised that hole downward, to $3.4 billion, in a meeting Monday. That means the situation isn’t as dire as the Democratic governor and Republican-led Legislature work to pass a budget. The shortfall for the coming fiscal year is less than $1 billion.
