Right-to-Work Legislatures Cause Chaos at the Michigan State Capitol

Posted: Updated:

Protestors moved across the street from the Capitol building to the Romney Building where Governor Snyder has an office after the right-to-work legislation passed.

The House finalized their version of the bill just hours ago.

We've been live on the scene since before the sun came up on Michigan This Morning, on 9&10 News at noon and updating you all day on the web.

Thousands of right-to-work protestors poured into Lansing today, trying to apply pressure to the republican controlled legislature.

This was the scene for many hours on the Capitol lawn.

Union workers from across the state rallied against a bill that would end compulsory union dues.

Many believe this causes unions to lose membership, and the power to work on behalf of their members.

Michael Kasiborski monitored the developments inside the Capitol and outside on the lawn throughout the day.
