Reimaging Redistricting, Inflation, Sustainability

Imagine a lightweight, easily transportable, fire-resistant and beautiful building material.... Imagine Mass Timber, the primary construction material underpinning Michigan State University's new STEM teaching and learning facility. 

In September's State of the State Podcast, MSU Mass Timber Director Sandra Lupien explores this relatively new material, formed of stacked and overlapping softwoods. See more about MSU's Mass Timber role here. IPPSR Director Matt Grossmann and Emeritus State of the State Survey Director Charles Ballard talk about the latest developments in redistricting, state budgeting, and national inflation fighting with podcast host and Associate IPPSR Director Arnold Weinfeld.
