LONDON, ENGLAND - JANUARY 15: A service is held as John Broadhurst, former C of E (Church of England) Bishop of Fulham, Andrew Burnham, former C of E Bishop of Ebbsfleet and Keith Newton, former C of E Bishop of Richborough are ordained as Roman Catholic priests at Westminster Cathedral on January 15, 2011 in Central London, England. The three Anglican bishops are making the move in direct opposition to action by the Church of England to legislate in favour of the consecration of women bishops. This will see the inauguration of a special section of the Roman Catholic Church created by Pope Benedict XVI, called the Ordinate, which will welcome married priests and maintain some Anglican practices. It has been estimated that the Church of England could see up to 50 traditionalist Anglican clergy and around 600 worshippers converting to Catholicism as a Vatican scheme for disaffected Anglicans begins.

In a letter sent to the Governor Wednesday, the League says it's asking state lawmakers to approve the money needed to launch the investigation.
This comes as Roman Catholic Diocese across Michigan turn over documents in a state investigation of sexual abuse by priests.
Governor Whitmer has asked the state legislature to approve $2 million for that probe.
