News Minute: Here is the latest Michigan news from The Associated Press

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Governor Rick Snyder isn't embracing Michigan House Speaker Jase Bolger's demand that Detroit unions give money to help shore up pensions as part of the city's strategy for exiting bankruptcy. Snyder and legislative leaders have pledged state aid to settle the bankruptcy, partly to ensure city pensioners can't sue the state when their benefits are trimmed. But it's not a done deal in the Legislature.

TROY, Mich. (AP) - A Detroit-area priest and his parish administrator are facing fraud and conspiracy charges. Prosecutors say the Reverend Edward Belczak and Janice Verschuren schemed to steal nearly $700,000 from St. Thomas More in Troy. Belczak was removed from the church last year after an audit raised questions about parish finances.

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The state school superintendent says students shouldn't be automatically suspended or expelled if other interventions can improve their behavior and keep them in school. He's spoken to students and teachers who have finished a Detroit-to-Lansing march to protest what they say are unnecessary suspensions and expulsions for minor offenses.

LEAVITT TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Authorities in western Michigan have a roundup on their hands. They say as many as 20 cattle got through a break in a fence at a farm in Oceana County's Leavitt Township, about 25 miles southeast of Ludington.
