New Michigan laws take effect

by

LANSING (WKZO) -- Roughly 60 Michigan laws go into effect today, including right-to-work and emergency manager legislation.

Many of the laws were approved during the three-week lame duck session after Thanksgiving.  Bill Ballenger, publisher of the Capitol newsletter Inside Michigan Politics, says this could be an all-time record for bills passed during lame duck.

Among the bills taking effect are right-to-work, emergency manager approval, a teen-driver cellphone ban, and the creation of a southeast Michigan transit authority.
