Governor Expects To Sign "Right To Work" This Week

Michigan Governor Rick Snyder says he expects right-to-work bills to be on his desk later this week and is calling them "good legislation."


In an interview Tuesday morning with WWJ-AM, the Republican governor didn't appear to have been swayed by pressure on the issue from Democrats including President Barack Obama. The president was greeted by Snyder during a visit to Michigan on a day earlier.

Snyder says he believes the bills will pass and says: "This is about being pro-worker." He says the intention is to give workers a choice.

The Republican-dominated Legislature used political muscle to rapidly introduce and ramrod legislation through the House and Senate in a single day last week.

Snyder says, however, that the issue has been long discussed in Michigan and wasn't rushed.
