A new commission would make recommendations on how Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder's proposed $165 million for infrastructure fixes might be spent.

Snyder signed an executive order Thursday to create the 21st Century Infrastructure Commission.

His office says that if the Legislature approves his budget proposal, the commission would help determine how some money is spent on transportation, water, sewer, energy, and communications infrastructure.

Snyder announced plans to create the commission during his State of the State address in January.

Tech Talk, every month talking about technology. Today's topic is crowdfunding with guests Corey Oostveen and Tamaryn Tobian.

Governor Rick Snyder says a bill package offering tax breaks for creation of an overall $5 billion data center in western Michigan is "not a simple yes-or-no answer".

The center, proposed by Nevada-based data and technology company Switch, would transform the former Steelcase pyramid and adjacent acreage in Gaines Township into a 2 million square-foot data center and campus.
