Right to Work Passes, Signed by Michigan Governor

As expected, the Michigan House voted today to enact the pending Right to Work bills. Michigan Governor Rick Snyder signed the bills this evening, making Michigan the 24th Right to Work state in the nation. The changes to the law become effective 90 days following the end of the 2012 legislative session, making the effective date likely to be on or about April 1, 2013.
