Attorney General Bill Schuette filed a challenge with the state court of appeals this week over the issue of public money for private schools. Schuette disagrees with a court ruling that said it's unconstitutional for the state to reimburse private schools for fire drills and other expenses required by the state.

Michigan Radio news analyst Jack Lessenberry and Morning Edition host Doug Tribou discuss the issue and whether Schuette's appeal stands a chance.

A U.S. Supreme Court decision has swept away Nevada's monopoly on legal sports betting. The 6-3 decision, released today, means states can opt to legalize sports betting and enjoy the tax benefits.

 State Rep. Robert Kosowski, D-Westland, stopped by Stateside to discuss a sports gambling bill that he had already set in motion prior to the Supreme Court decision.
