Leaders consider right-to-work legislation

LANSING (AP) — The Republican leaders of the Michigan Senate and House planned to meet with Gov. Rick Snyder later Tuesday to discuss, among other things, whether to introduce right-to-work legislation limiting unions' ability to collect fees from nonunion workers.

Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville told The Associated Press that he doesn't know whether or when such legislation would be introduced. But he said he, House Speaker Jase Bolger and Snyder have been discussing the contentious issue with other legislators and labor and business leaders.

"There are a lot of things to be considered ... and we're doing this work independently and coming together and comparing notes. And we're hopeful that the three of us will come to a conclusion together — the united conclusion — as to what's best. But it's not a foregone conclusion that we'll all be united."
