Michigan state legislators approved a bill that will create a system similar to the Amber Alert set-up that will inform residents when there is an active shooter.  What does this mean for Washtenaw County?

New bipartisan legislation in the state House would create a statewide active shooter alert system. 


Michigan's AMBER Alert system won't be affected by the partial federal government shutdown. WEMU's Bob Eccles has more.
