    governor Engler who had presidential aspirations and was backed by the wealthy DeVos folks.  He wanted to drive down the state's unemployment numbers and supportive services costs and set aside emergency funds to send the unemployed out of state if they knew of a state where they might find work.  It didn't work out though because moving families on one-way money doesn't take into account people's desire for roots and connectivity to their chosen environment, not to mention the nightmare of trying to sell a house from a distant state.  Engler also dumped the mentally ill into the streets where law enforcement had to deal with them.
