LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has signed Republican-backed laws to significantly scale back citizen-initiated measures to raise the minimum wage and require paid sick leave for workers. The term-limited Republican governor’s move Friday is sure to prompt a lawsuit over an unprecedented strategy adopted by lame-duck lawmakers.

DETROIT (AP) — The General Motors’ massive 14,000-person layoff announced last month might not be as bad as originally projected. The company said Friday that 2,700 out of the 3,300 factory jobs slated for elimination will now be saved by adding jobs at other U.S. factories. Blue-collar workers in many cities will still lose jobs when GM shutters four U.S. factories next year. But most could find employment at other GM plants. Some would have to relocate.

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Some of the women abused by imprisoned former sports doctor Larry Nassar are asking Michigan State University not to redirect $8.5 million from a victims’ counseling fund to a larger money settlement in the case. Interim MSU President John Engler wants the money redirected to a $500 million settlement with Nassar victims. But victims and their supporters pushed back Friday during a Board of Trustees meeting. The Lansing State Journal reports the board didn’t make a decision Friday.

BLACKMAN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — A southern Michigan school district has been ordered to release school bus surveillance footage in a lawsuit alleging that a driver forced students to sit in extreme heat for behaving badly. A Jackson County judge who ordered Northwest Community Schools to release the video also ordered the plaintiff to pay for redacting the video to remove students from view. The suit says a driver drove around for nearly an hour in August, forced students to close windows and possibly turned on the heat.
