LANSING, Mich. — A new report from the Center for Public Integrity has found that Michigan has a lot of work to do when it comes to being transparent, informing the public, and being held accountable.

“The shadowy aspects of Michigan’s money-driven politics serve as a key reason why the state ranks last among the 50 states with a grade of F and a numerical score of 51 out of 100 from the State Integrity Investigation,” states the report.  “Michigan received an F in 10 of the 13 categories of government operations that were examined.”

Michigan received similar scores in 2012, the first year this report was put together.  Click here to read the full report and accompanying article.
