THERE ARE 58AYE VOTES AND 52 NO VOTES. THE BILL PASSED. NO WAY THAT BILL PASSED WITH AN ENTIRE STATEHOUSE FULL OF PEOPLE. PEOPLE ARE HERE TRYING TO GET THE ATTENTION OF GOVERNOR SNYDER AND REPUBLICAN LEGISLATURE. THIS IS 24-HOUR NEWS EIGHT. IT’S BREAKING NEWS THAT WE’VE BEEN FOLLOWING FOR YOU ALL DAY LONG. WE HAVE JUST LEARNED THAT GOVERNOR RICK SNYDER HAS SIGNED RIGHT TO WORK LEGISLATION INTO LAW. GOOD EVENING, EVERYONE. THANK YOU FOR JOINING US TONIGHT. I’M SUSAN SHAW. HISTORY MADE AT THE STATE CAPITOL, MORE THAN 10,000 PROTESTORS SWARMED THE LAWN, OFFICERS IN RIOT GEAR MADE ARRESTS. WE’VE CONFIRMED THREE PEOPLE WERE ARRESTED WITHIN ALTHOUGH THERE MAY HAVE BEEN MORE. FROM PROTESTS TO LAWMAKERS ARGUING TO WHAT’S NEXT. OUR TEAM OF REPORTERS SPREAD OUT TO BRING YOU THE BEST COVERAGE. WE BEGIN WITH OUR POLITICAL REPORTER. I’M IN THE GOVERNOR’S SUITE OF OFFICES IN THE ROMNEY BUILDING. HE IS STILL BRIEFING THE PRESS ABOUT SIGNING THOSE TWO BILLS THAT CAME OVER TO HIS DESK THIS AFTERNOON. HERE’S WHAT HE HAD TO SAY JUST A COUPLE OF MOMENTS AGO. JUST A FEW MINUTES EARLIER, I HAVE SIGNED THESE BILLS INTO LAW, SO BOTH THE PUBLIC SECTOR AND PRIVATE SECTOR BILL HAVE BEEN SIGNED, SO WE ARE MOVING FORWARD ON THE TOPIC OF WORKPLACE FAIRNESS AND EQUALITY. THOSE BILLS WILL GO INTO EFFECT NEAR THE FIRST OF APRIL. A VERY TENSE DAY IN THE CAPITOL BUILDING. WE HAVE MORE ABOUT THAT COMING UP FIRST, A LOOK AT EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED TODAY IN THE STATEHOUSE. [ CROWD CHANTING ] IT STARTED AS IF IT WERE A NORMAL DAY, THE LEGISLATURE COMES TO ORDER TO TAKE CARE OF THE PEOPLE’S BUSINESS. BUT IT WAS NO NORMAL DAY, BECAUSE THE BUSINESS OF THIS DAY WAS RIGHT TO WORK. THERE WERE IMPASSED SPEECHES. WE ARE GOING TO PASS SOMETHING THAT WILL UNDUE 100 YEARS OF LABOR RELATIONS. AND THERE WILL BE BLOOD. THERE WILL BE REPERCUSSIONS. REPUBLICANS TOOK A DIFFERENT VIEW. I URGE YOU TO SUPPORT A BILL THAT WILL GIVE WORKING PEOPLE THE FREEDOM TO DECIDE FOR THEMSELVES WHETHER OR NOT TO JOIN A UNION. THIS BILL IS NOT AN ATTACK ON COLLECTIVE BARGAINING, IN FACT, WORKERS ABILITY TO COLLECTIVELY BARGAIN DOES NOT CHANGE ONE BUILT. THE FRUSTRATION OF THE MINORITY, KNOWING GOING INTO THIS DAY THAT THEY WERE LIKELY TO LOSE THIS BATTLE CAME POURING OUT ON A PROCEDURAL QUESTION. NO WAY THAT THAT BILL IN THIS CHAMBER WITH THIS ENTIRE GALLERY FULL OF PEOPLE. YOU HAVE GOT TO FOLLOW THE RULES OF THIS CHAMBER! YOU CANNOT OVEREMPHASIZE WHAT A SWEEPING CHANGE IN POLICY THIS REPRESENTS, PARTICULARLY IN THE STATE OF MICHIGAN, A STATE THAT HAS ALWAYS BEEN STRONG WITH UNIONS AND IS ACTUALLY THE HOME OF THE U.A.W. NOW, THOSE PEOPLE WHO GO TO WORK IN UNION SHOPS WILL HAVE A CHANCE TO SAY NO THANK YOU WHAT IT COMES TO PAYING UNION DOS. THAT MEANS UNIONS MAY STRUGGLE TO HAVE THE CASH TO DO COLLECTIVE BARGAINING AND ALSO THEIR POLITICAL ASPIRATION. A LOT OF ANGRY FOLKS TODAY. A LOT OF THEM AT THE ROMNEY BUILDING, TOO. POLICE HAD TO COMPLETELY SEAL IT OFF. AS SOON AS THE GOVERNOR IS DONE TALKING WITH THE MEDIA, HE TALKS
