State Attorney General Bill Schuette wants the governor to be in charge of appointing board members at Michigan State University, Wayne State University and the University of Michigan. Board members at those schools are currently chosen through statewide elections.

This Week in Review, Weekend Edition host Rebecca Kruth and senior news analyst Jack Lessenberry discuss Schuette's call to eliminate the elections, which comes as MSU's board faces public scrutiny over its response to the Larry Nassar scandal. 


They also talk about former Governor John Engler's first days as MSU's interim president, a Detroit Free Press investigation into U of M's investments in companies who have donated money to the university, and last quarter's campaign finance reports.
