GOP looking at post-election responses to labor

By JEFF KAROUB, Associated Press

DETROIT, Nov. 7, 2012 (AP): Michigan's Republican leaders say there will be legislative responses to the blow dealt by voters who rejected the state's tough emergency managers law, including a possible replacement measure.

Right-to-work legislation aimed even more squarely at taking on labor also could be discussed after voters rejected putting union rights in the state constitution.

Gov. Rick Snyder on Wednesday applauded efforts to rework the emergency manager law and plans to talk with legislators. Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville says legislation has been drafted to replace the 2011 law that voters rejected Tuesday.

House Speaker Jase Bolger's spokesman Ari Adler says it's time to discuss right-to-work laws, since ``the unions pushed the play button.'' They would limit unions' ability to collect fees from nonunion workers.

Snyder says right-to-work isn't part of his agenda.
