LANSING, MI (WTVB) - The fight over whether or not to make Michigan a "Right to Work" state is heating up once again. A pair of Republican heavyweights are pushing the state Senate to pass right to work legislation before the end of the year, but Democratic strategists warn that will result in recalls. MIRS News reports former Michigan Republican Party chairman Ron Weiser and 2006 GOP gubernatorial nominee Dick DeVos are putting the pressure on in the Senate, where Majority Leader Randy Richardville doesn't want to take it up. Democratic strategist Joe DiSano predicts if a right to work bill passes, the lawmakers who sponsor the legislation will likely be recall targets. Indiana passed a right to work law earlier this year, leading some to fear the movement will spread north.
