LANSING, MI (WKZO) -- One of the first challenges to Michigan’s right to work law will be heard today in an Ingham County Courtroom.
Judge William Collette is scheduled to hear a claim that because the capital had been closed to protestors for five hours by the state police during the debate and vote on the Right to Work law, that the meeting violated the state’s open meetings act. A coalition of labor groups and the ACLU have filed the challenge, demanding that the law be tossed out.
Attorney General Bill Schutte is expected to argue that the Version of the right to work bill that passed while the doors were closed, was not the one that eventually became law. He is also expected to argue that the Capitol Building was still full of protestors even after the doors were closed.
