“It’s heartening that Judge Collette decided to throw out Attorney General Bill Schuette’s absurd arguments to block this lawsuit from moving forward,” said Geno Alessandrini with the Michigan Laborers District Council. “Last December our members were locked outside of the People’s House for nearly five hours while Lansing Republicans dishonestly slipped so-called ‘right-to-work’ language into an unrelated bill. Closing the Capitol during session and ordering Republican staffers to occupy seats in the gallery that are reserved for the public was a blatant violation of the Open Meetings Act. It’s encouraging that the public will finally get our day in court. Hopefully Lansing Republicans will get the message that it’s time to start protecting middle class families, instead of corporate special interests.”
