Detroit school children, Flint residents and residents across the state will be affected when the next state budget takes effect in three months.
— have a child who goes to a parochial or other private school, the school could qualify for part of $2.5 million set aside to reimburse nonpublic schools for the cost of meeting state requirements such as safety drills and immunization reporting.
Public school groups say the aid is unconstitutional and likely will file a lawsuit.
— live in Detroit, the budget includes the first payment toward a $617 million bailout and restructuring of the city's debt-ridden public school district.
The state plans to graduate 65 new troopers and 10 new motor carrier officers, bringing trooper ranks to their highest level since 2002.
— The budget sets aside $2 million that public and private schools can compete for to make security upgrades.
— It will cost more to look up driver records — $11 instead of $8, raising $14 million to replace computer systems at the secretary of state's office.
The spending also is intended to specifically help children — subsidizing child care, providing healthy food to reduce lead poisoning risks and covering psychotherapy sessions.
— nearly $3 million to draw down all available federal funding for a program that provides low-interest loans to municipalities for drinking water infrastructure upgrades.
— are an advocate of re-examining Michigan's law that treats 17-year-old criminals as adults, the state is spending $500,000 to study the savings of considering them as juveniles.
— want to see indigent defendants get better legal representation, the budget includes $1.3 million more to implement minimum standards and to monitor counties' compliance.
— The budget expands dental coverage to 131,000 low-income 13- to 21-year-olds in Wayne, Oakland and Kent counties, the final step toward implementing the Healthy Kids Dental p
"Hi, Shane," the roomful of drug court defendants and law enforcement officials called back.
For the next 30 minutes, all listened as Nickerson recounted his journey from teenage addict to mayor in charge of the same police force that once hassled him as a youth with a penchant for death metal, delinquency and drugs.
For now, he is the mayor of Blossburg, a tiny town roughly an hour east of here on Route 6, a two-lane asphalt ribbon lined on either side by seasonal motels, one-horse towns and Marcellus Shale wellsites.
Many see him as an unconventional asset in the fight against a growing local drug problem.
Many who sell drugs like heroin to support their habits and who blur the lines between respective ends in a supply chain.
Drug courts or prison diversion programs like this one in Potter County have emerged in response to, or alongside, that debate.
Senior Judge John Leete called the defendants forward, one by one, to press them on their commitment to sobriety, their patronage of required 12-step meetings, and their overall compliance with the rigors of the program.
Leete has lost young people he's mentored to addiction, and watched as friends were forced to bury a son.
At the end of each appearance, defendants were applauded by the county's top prosecutor, other law enforcement officials and by each other.
 Leete, a long-time jurist whose case history includes the Paterno family's lawsuit against the NCAA, was a constant source of moral support.
If this doesn't sound like the American criminal justice system you know, that's because it's not.
The meteoric rise of heroin addiction over the last decade, and some would argue its large-scale movement into white communities, has coincided with a reevaluation of decades' worth of hard-nosed, Nixon-era enforcement methods, now viewed as draconian and misguided by an increasing number of Americans.
