In this Jan. 31, 2019, file photo, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer speaks to the media at the Michigan State Police headquarters in Dimondale, Mich. The first tussle between the Democratic Governor and the Republican-led Legislature isn't over how to fix the roads, overhaul school funding or tackle the state's high car insurance premiums. Instead, they're clashing over the environment _ specifically how Michigan adopts regulations and permit requirements for businesses and citizens. Whitmer recently abolished panels created last year. Now GOP lawmakers may reject her order.
