Michigan State Police Spent $900,000 On Overtime During Right To Work Protests

Posted: Updated:

The Michigan State Police spend $900,000 on overtime and other expenses during the "Right to Work" Protests, in Lansing.

Most of the money was spent on overtime.

The rest went toward travel, lodging and other expenses.

9&10 News was in the midst of it all, as Union Protestors crowded in and around the Capitol Building for two days, back in December.

State Police say their large show of force cut short potential protests that could have led to millions more in overtime costs.
