First-term state Rep. John Espinoza, looking into a horrendous police case just outside his Thumb legislative district, was shocked to learn that there is no Michigan law making it illegal to torture someone.

Espinoza, a Democrat from Croswell in Sanilac County, sponsored legislation that ultimately led to passage last week of two bills calling for punishment up to life in prison for anyone committing torture. The House measures, adopted 104-0, now go to the Senate for consideration.

A bipartisan agreement designed to improve the state's economy appeared to be in trouble Tuesday as Democratic Gov. Jennifer Granholm and Republican legislative leaders differed over whether the state's main business tax would stop at the end of 2009 as scheduled.

Granholm said she began negotiations with GOP lawmakers a few weeks ago to come up with a plan to lower taxes and provide investments for up-and-coming industries with the understanding that the single business tax would continue after Dec. 31, 2009.
