State Lawmakers Offer Help After Outages

State legislators are trying to help people affected by an ice storm that knocked out power for hundreds of thousands of people across mid-Michigan, some of whom are still awaiting restoration more than a week later.

Sen. Rick Jones (R-Grand Ledge) is proposing a bill that would toughen regulation on the Lansing Board of Water and Light.

Senate Minority Leader Gretchen Whitmer (D-East Lansing) has been taking calls at her office from constituents who haven't been able to get in touch with BWL and trying to find solutions to their power problems.

Tonight at six, News 10's Lorne Fultonberg tells you what legislators think were the biggest shortcomings during this week's winter ice storm and what they plan to do about it.
