Stateside for Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013

It's been a challenging few years for non-profits in Michigan, whether they depended on private donations or corporate, the Great Recession hurt organizations all over the state.

On today's show: we'll see how non-profits are feeling as the economy gradually recovers. We'll also take a look at General Motors as the North America CFO says the company has plans to redesign, refresh or replace almost 90 percent of its vehicles. We talk with two leading auto analysts to find out what this really means for consumers.

The Michigan Pinball Expo is coming to Oakland University this week. We talk with the organizer and long-time pinball player about what's happening for Michigan's "pinball wizards."

But first off, two important and controversial laws that took effect this week in Michigan. These laws were passed in the blizzard of activity by the lame-duck Michigan Legislature last December.

One law concerns medical marijuana, and the other concerns abortion.
