State Attorney General Bill Schuette (R) “is beating his Republican gubernatorial campaign drum for the GOP-controlled Legislature to use this opportunity to pare back the income tax to 3.9 percent. That’s the tax rate that was levied before” former Gov. Jennifer Granholm (D) “and a split Legislature raised taxes in 2007 to shore up a deficit-ridden state budget.”

But term-limited Gov. Rick Snyder (R) and Lt. Gov. Brian Calley (R) “— Schuette’s top opponent for the Republican gubernatorial nomination — are trying to put the brakes on the Schuette-led march to cut taxes without corresponding reductions in spending — like they did in 2011.” (Crain’s Detroit Business)

NASSAR. “Schuette will provide a review of Michigan State University’s handling of its ex-Dr. Larry Nassar, he said in a statement on Friday.”

Schuette: “A full and complete review, report and recommendation of what occurred at Michigan State University is required and I will provide that. However, this week and the coming weeks are time for the survivors of Larry Nassar to have their day in court, and I refuse to upstage their time for healing.” (MLive)

COMING UP NEXT. “Four of Michigan’s Democratic candidates for governor are slated to participate in a series of town halls hosted by the Michigan AFL-CIO over the next several months.” (MLive)
