Michigan Senate Majority Leader Mike Bishop says it's time to think about making the state legislature part-time.
He says it would save money and might help the process.
It works well in Indiana which has successfully competed against Michigan for manufacturing jobs and which has a good standard of living.
Bishop wants to make the change part of governmental reform talks.
Do we need a full-time state legislature where each member gets a six-figure salary, handsome pension and impossible to turn-down health benefits?
What are the pros and cons?
