Mich. governor says he’ll sign right-to-work bill

LANSING, Mich. — Rick Snyder, the governor of Michigan, said he would sign so-called right-to-work bills that began moving through the Legislature on Friday, measures that would make the birthplace of the United Auto Workers the second state to curb labor this year.

The plan prompted demonstrations in the Lansing Capitol by hundreds of chanting union supporters, some sporting Santa Claus hats. Police used pepper spray and arrested eight members of the crowd before closing the building, said Shanon Banner, a State Police spokeswoman.
