Breaking News – Snyder Signs Right To Work Bills
Moments ago, Gov. Rick Snyder held a press conference in which he announced he had officially signed SB 0116 and HB 4003 making Michigan the nation’s 24th Right to Work state. The move comes just hours after the Michigan House of Representatives finalized the measures by separate margins of 58-52 and 58-51. Republicans needed 56 votes for passage.
Massive outrage over this contentious issue drew a crowd of over 13,000 Michiganders to the state capitol, however, their voices of opposition fell on deaf ears.
The bill was not given immediate effect, meaning it will not be implemented until 90 days after the end of the legislative year.
