Michigan Democrats working on legislation MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News)Michigan Senate Democrats are already at work trying to repeal the state’s new right-to-work laws.

Senate Democrat Hoon Hopgood announced yesterday that he has submitted for introduction bills to repeal right-to-work laws. Hopgood says the people of Michigan were completely shut out of the legislative process with the right-to-work regulation.

Republican lawmakers passed the legislation to make Michigan the nation’s 24th right-to-work state over the objections of Democrats and thousands of protesters that demonstrated outside the Capitol building.

The likelihood of Hopgood’s legislation being passed is slim as it would need the blessing of Republican leadership to get a hearing or a vote.  House Democrats are working on similar legislation.
