Michigan Capitol Confidential is the news source for Michigan residents who want an alternative to “bigger government” remedies in policy debates. CapCon reports with a free-market news perspective about the public officials who seek to limit government, those who do not, and those whose votes are at odds with what they say.

As news coverage in our state capitol dwindles, it is increasingly important to have outside scrutiny of our elected officials and government bureaucracies. We have the team in place to help fill that void. Readers can expect balanced, substantive reporting, aided by insightful analysis, hard data and legal expertise.
