Are You a Michigander or Michiganian
Here's the big question, are you a Michigander or a Michiganian? In the eyes of the state Legislature, Michigander is the official term for the residents of Michigan and they have a bill that passed unanimously in both the House and Senate this week to prove it.
The bill says the Historical Commission shall encourage the public to preserve historic resources and to develop a sense of identity as Michiganders. The initial reference to Michiganian is crossed out.
Former Govs. Jim Blanchard, John Engler and Jennifer Granholm favored Michiganian, but Gov. Rick Snyder prefers Michigander. Here's more from the Detroit Free Press.
