Meanwhile, a Michigan panel has approved a $500 million plan that would bail out and overhaul Detroit's ailing school district, which will run out of money at the end of June. The action comes as some GOP leaders lash out at teachers for the sick-outs, which gave nearly 45,000 schoolchildren another unscheduled day off. The educators stopped short of calling it a strike, instead saying they called the massive sick-out in response to an announcement that the district wouldn't be able to pay teachers who deferred part of their salaries to get checks during the summer months.http://news.findlaw.com/apnews/6d38178e341241a396b4782088031e01Once a powerbroker, ex-NY Assembly speaker awaits sentencehttp://news.findlaw.com/apnews/577814ddef744a08979b58b2929fbc8eTue, 03 May 2016 17:11:37 GMTNEW YORK (AP) — Former New York Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, a consummate backroom dealer who wielded power for more than two decades, awaited his sentence on federal corruption charges Tuesday in one the steepest falls from grace in the state's lineup of crooked politicians.http://news.findlaw.com/apnews/577814ddef744a08979b58b2929fbc8eThe Latest: Michigan panel approves Detroit school planhttp://news.findlaw.com/apnews/41179c4e5afb48788c34901eeaa8a13cTue, 03 May 2016 17:14:16 GMTLANSING, Mich.
