Michigan Capitol Confidential is the news source produced by the Mackinac Center for Public Policy. Michigan Capitol Confidential reports with a free-market news perspective.

As news coverage in our state capitol dwindles, it is important to have outside scrutiny of our elected officials and government bureaucracies. Readers can expect precise reporting as well as analysis and opinion-blogs.
