LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is criticizing the Republican-led Legislature for taking a “vacation” without a deal to fund state services or spend more to fix the roads. The Democratic governor held a budget briefing with reporters Tuesday, as lawmakers began a two-month stretch in which session days are “tentative” only. Whitmer and Republicans are at odds over her plan that includes a 45-cents-a-gallon fuel tax increase to improve roads and end “shell games” that limit education spending increases.

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — A Michigan State University physiology professor who was suspended after more than half a dozen women accused him of sexual harassment has returned to work. School spokeswoman Emily Guerrant tells the Lansing State Journal that Robert Wiseman was suspended without pay from Feb. 22 through April 4. He teaches at the College of Osteopathic Medicine. MSU’s Office of Institutional Equity says Wiseman engaged in “unwanted, persistent and pervasive” sexual behavior. Wiseman denied the allegations.

IRON MOUNTAIN, Mich. (AP) — A hospital that is a major employer in an Upper Peninsula county is getting support from public officials as it pursues a $25 million federal loan. The Daily News says Dickinson County commissioners this week voted to endorse the effort. Former U.S. Rep. Bart Stupak says a loan from the U.S. Agriculture Department would stabilize finances at Dickinson County Healthcare System. He was hired to lead the restructuring.

PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) — A Detroit-area man known for being convicted of murder at age 13 has been sentenced to at least six years in prison for a drug conviction. Nathaniel Abraham apologized Tuesday and said he was taking “full responsibility.” The 33-year-old pleaded guilty in May to delivering heroin and methamphetamine. Abraham will be eligible for parole after six years. Defense attorney James Galen told Abraham’s mother than the sentence could have been worse because of her son’s criminal record.
