Michigan Won't Use Tourism Logo in Right-to-Work Ads

Posted:

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan is halting the use of the "Pure Michigan" logo in ads touting the state's new right-to-work law.

A Michigan Economic Development Corp. official told lawmakers Thursday that the agency is re-evaluating the use of the award-winning tourism logo in economic development ads.

The state has been using the brand to market economic development for more than a year. But the decision to refer to the right-to-work law and Pure Michigan in a January ad in the Wall Street Journal struck a nerve with Democrats and others.

Republican Governor Rick Snyder has denied knowledge of the ad before it ran and has said he wouldn't have emphasized right-to-work as much.
