Michigan House backs off of long-term contract issues with right-to-work law

by

LANSING (WKZO) -- The state House has taken out controversial language from a bill which would have drastically cut the state funding for schools, universities, colleges and even local governments for skirting right-to-work.

House Republicans had sought to slash the aid for those who approved long-term contracts with their unions before the right-to-work law took effect in March.  The University of Michigan and Wayne State University would have taken the largest hits with a proposed 15-percent cut.

The state Senate had passed budget bills without the penalties, and Governor Snyder also did not back them.
