Michigan Democrats make final right-to-work push

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Democratic members of Michigan's congressional delegation and those serving in the state Legislature are pressing their case against right-to-work legislation in the final hours before its likely passage.

Sen. Carl Levin and House Democrats met with Republican Gov. Rick Snyder Monday and say they urged him to veto the bills limiting unions' power that he has pledged to sign. Meanwhile, Michigan House leaders called for more debate before the GOP-led Legislature takes final action on the measures as early as Tuesday.

The state House and Senate approved bills last week that would prohibit requiring non-union employees to financially support unions at their workplace.

Lansing authorities are bracing for an onslaught of protesters Tuesday. They have increased police presence and plan road closings and parking restrictions around the Capitol.
