Senate Bill 14, sponsored by Republican State Senator Mark Jansen, will repeal the Michigan Health and Safety Act (MIOSHA) in favor of a federal OSHA program. The elimination of MIOSHA would be a significant step backward for workplace health and safety in Michigan.

Let your representatives know the importance of MIOSHA. Our state is one of the best in preventing occupational injuries and deaths, and we intend to keep it that way. 

Also, write in to your local newspaper and express your concerns regarding SB-14.

The opening session of Michigan House of Representatives began with the introduction of House Bill 4054 (HB4054), a bill that would create Right-to-Work zones. The bill was introduced by Representatives Knollenberg, Jacobsen, MacMaster, McMillin, Lund, Genetski and LaFontaine and was referred to the Committee on Commerce.
 
Right-to-Work is simply not good public policy. Its divisive nature is harmful to business, to workers and to the states recovery. It is simply a lose-lose proposition.
 
Contact the state legislature today and ask our elected officials to support jobs, not bills that are harmful to our economic recovery.  Vote NO on HB 4054.
