The Michigan House is bringing Right-to-Work up for a vote in a closed session, including an appropriations bill and the Governor has agreed to sign it.

At least 8 Union protestors have been arrested by the Michigan State Police at the Capital.

The inclusion of an appropriation in the bill is key. With that the bill cannot be over-ruled via a referendum (which would be sure to follow if it were possible). The state Senate isn't much of a hurdle either as the GOP has a super-majority there.

Unless someone nukes Lansing in the very near future Michigan will be a Right-to-Work state in the very near future. Pending a bunch of lawsuits, that is (but the Conservatives have a 5-4 edge in state Supreme Court too so... yeah, looks good to go!)

I'll try not to be too smug about it to pouting UAW members. :-)
