MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – 109th District State Representative John Kivela visited The SUNNY Morning Show with Walt & Mike today to give an update the last few weeks of action at the capital.
Kivela gave the listeners his perspective on several matters including his call for a public hearing into the recently announced plan to privatize food services in the state prison system.
Kivela says there are several statistical anomalies in the selected company’s proposal and other issues with their service record that give him reason to call for the hearing and further scrutiny of the decision awarding the contract.
He also talked about the House involvement in the Natural Resources Commission legislation granting them the power to classify wildlife as game animals. In particular, he talked about the role of the U.P.’s House delegation in getting the measure through committee.
