LANSING (AP) -- Gov. Rick Snyder’s second annual State of the State address on Wednesday is going to include some mixed grades on how well he’s succeeded in making Michigan a better place to live.
On the down side, the percentage of the state’s population holding a bachelor’s degree has dropped, and the percentage of children living in poverty is stuck at 23 percent. On the up side, the monthly unemployment rate is in single digits for the first time in three years, and the number of online services offered by the state is up nearly 10 percent.
