Craig's guest is Mark Burton, partner and co-leader of the Economic Development Incentives Group at Honigman, a post he took in March. Prior to joining Honigman, Mark Burton was the CEO of the Michigan Economic Development Corp., which works to attract businesses and investment to the state, and tries to create a good environment for businesses to thrive. The two discuss which tools are emerging as the most effective in luring companies to Michigan, and what we have learned about past incentive programs that didn't always live up to expectations. Things like community benefits agreements, employment guarantees, and environmental impact assessments are much more common today than even a decade ago. They also discuss the importance of regional cooperation and avoiding a so called "race to the bottom" of tax incentives.

Craig and Allan Lengel of DeadlineDetroit.com sit down to discuss the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Deadline Detroit Editor Allan Lengel was a reporter at The Washington Post, working on the disappearance of an intern from California named Chandra Levy. On Sept. 11, 2001, his assignment changed. Around 9:30 a.m., he was walking to the subway in northwest D.C., heading to work, when he bumped into a friend who told him that two planes had just crashed into the World Trade Center in New York. By the time he got off the subway, a jet had also crashed into the Pentagon in Arlington, Va., just outside D.C. To mark the attack's 20th anniversary, Lengel talks with Deadline Detroit's Craig Fahle about what happened next, including his conversation with his mother who survived Auschwitz and flying days later to Detroit to cover a terrorism hearing.

Is Michigan's Petition Drive System Broken?
Today, Craig revisits a conversation from earlier this year with John Lindstrom, former publisher of Gongwer News Service in Lansing. They discuss Michigan's constitution, and a provision that allows for voter referendums that are basically veto proof. Under Michigan law, petition drives that gather enough signatures under the law can go straight to the Legislature, which if they approve, can not be vetoed by the Governor. The referendum method of creating law has been used many times in recent decades, and now is being used by Michigan Republicans to get Voter ID requirements passed despite a likely veto by Governor Whitmer. Michigan's law is unique...only 340 thousand signatures are needed to get the issue in front of the Legislature. This means a very small minority of voters can get laws passed without the Governor's signature, or a vote of the population. Is it time to change this? What needs to be done to make that happen?
