The Michigan House has passed the first bill permitting workers to opt out of paying required fees to participate in a union. This covers public sector jobs and passed 58 to 51, reports Michigan Public Radio Networks. The next bill to be debated today will address private sector work. Loud protests continue inside the Capitol building.
Michigan Radio reporter Steve Carmody says state police are forming a 'perimeter' outside the capitol, and are wearing riot gear.
