Governor Gretchen Whitmer calls the decision wrong after a judge temporarily blocked her flavored vape ban on Tuesday.
A Michigan judge has just blocked the state's flavored e-cigarette ban. The injunction was issued by a Michigan Court of Claims judge following a lawsuit filed by a business owner who sells vape products.
The GOP's budget differences with the governor were laid bare Wednesday following Whitmer's veto of 147 items from the legislature's proposed budget. After cutting more than a billion dollars from the proposal, there's chatter in Lansing that that money could be sent back to taxpayers.
"I do not relish using these powers. But they were absolutely necessary because the budgets they sent were fatally flawed," Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said after using a state board to transfer funds between individual agencies.

Michigan's ban the sale of flavored vaping products could harm more people than help. That's the sentiment that some public health officials feel about a blanket ban of a product that is less harmful to its users than those who smoke tobacco. However, Michigan's state health department feels because of a spike in vaping use among youth, it's a necessary order to carry out. Several health organizations agree with the state.
Give a one-word reaction to the statement: "Gretchen Whitmer for vice president." Ever since her appearance at the Detroit Democratic presidential debate in July, Whitmer's name has managed to float onto the rumor mill of potential nominees for vice president.
