LANSING (WKZO) -- Poor people arrested and charged with crimes in Michigan will get a better shot at decent legal counsel-- that's Governor Snyder's opinion of a new law he signed Monday to overhaul the indigent defense system in the state, saying it's been a problem for "far too long."  The new law creates a 16 member commission that will come up with and enforce the standards for legal representation across Michigan.
