Stateside for Tuesday, March 12, 2013
Legislation to change the state's auto no-fault insurance keeps popping back up at the Capitol.
On today's show, we take a look at why it keeps coming back and what the changes would mean for you.

Some Detroit City Council officials have formally appealed the determination that their city is in a financial emergency. That designation is part of the ramp up to a take-over by an emergency financial manager.
City Council representatives argued their case to Chief Deputy Treasurer Mary MacDowell.
Rick Pluta, Lansing Bureau Chief for the Michigan Public Radio Network, was at the hearing today and we asked him if the appeal will change the Governor's mind about appointing an emergency manager.
