Even though a bill has yet to surface, legislators Tuesday were getting an earful from supporters and opponents of making Michigan a right-to-work state. The voices came from Tea Party members, small business owners and union members. Americans for Prosperity-Michigan set up an information tent in front of the Capitol and Union Conservatives brought in several members.

Activists from the opposing and supporting camps have been spending most of their time going from office to office in the Senate and House buildings. Unlike Indiana, where lawmakers approved a right-to-work law earlier this year, unions in Michigan have been keeping a low profile. They have yet to stage any large scale pickets. Union representatives, however, were in front of the capitol Tuesday observing activity at the AFP-Michigan tent.
