Three years ago, Michigan law didn’t mention dyslexia. Now the state is a step closer to enacting comprehensive measures to improve literacy by screening for and addressing the hereditary reading disorder.

The bills passed unanimously, an unusual occurrence in an election year when education policy has become a hot-button political issue.
