House, Senate pass two right-to-work bills; debate on third continues

Lansing — Right-to-work bills have passed the Republican-controlled Michigan House and Senate on Thursday while a third bill was still being debated late into the evening in the state Senate.

The debate in both houses was done under the protest of Democratic lawmakers who blasted GOP leaders for jamming the bill through hours after its introduction.

The bill passed 58-52 in the House mostly along party lines under protest from Democrats and a temporary walkout. The bill has to sit for five days before the Senate can vote on it, according to Ari Adler, spokesman for House Speaker Jase Bolger, R-Marshall.

The Senate bill passed 22-16.

A substitute version of House Bill 4054 includes an appropriation attached to the legislation, making it "referendum-proof," said Rep. Vicki Barnett, D-Farmington Hills
