LANSING, MI (WTVB) - For the first time since 1996, there are almost as many people moving into Michigan as there are people departing the state.  According to a new study, last year there were nearly 5,600 moves in and out of Michigan.  46% of those were into the state while 54% were headed elsewhere.  This compares to previous figures showing Michigan leading the nation for years in the number of moves out of the state. Experts say this closer balance indicates positive news for an improving economy.
