About this audio file:

On June 8, 2009, Jack McHugh, senior legislative analyst for the Mackinac Center, was a guest on "The Frank Beckmann Show" on WJR AM760. McHugh discussed his newly released study in which he details eight budget reforms on which Center scholars and Gov. Jennifer Granholm agree. While the savings from the reforms would be minimal — about $100 million — McHugh questions why the Legislature has not embraced such "low-hanging fruit," and that if legislators cannot adopt ideas already embraced by the governor and Center, how will they handle much harder budget cuts ahead. The interview is 6 minutes and 57 seconds.
