LANSING (WKZO) -- A State Senate subcommittee has voted to trim a half million dollars out of the funding for Michigan State University for operating a Labor Academy.

Lawton Republican Tonya Schuitmaker, Chair of the subcommittee says the courses promote organizing labor and target job providers.

MSU Officials pointed out they also have courses in their business school that teach labor relations.

The cut decreases the size of the 5.9% increase that MSU will get this year.
