Schauer unveils economic priorities for women, families

LANSING (WKZO) -- Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mark Schauer is touting a five-point plan to address economic priorities of women and families in Michigan. He is calling for a restoration of the child tax credit, which he says was wiped out by Governor Rick Snyder to pay for a 1.8-billion dollar tax break for corporations.

Schauer also wants to expand sick leave, strengthen equal pay laws, strengthen job protections for pregnant women and get rid of a new law Democrats call "rape insurance." That law requires women to purchase a rider on their health insurance if they want to have abortions covered.
