2011 House Bill 4003

House Roll Call 166: Passed

To establish that a person whose private employment compensation comes from a direct or indirect government subsidy is not considered a government employee, and so is not subject to being inducted into a government employee union. Such a scheme involving home day care providers was ended after a Mackinac Center <a href="http://coa.courts.mi.gov/resources/asp/viewdocket.asp?casenumber=294087&amp;inqtype=public&amp;yr=0&amp;yr=0&amp;SubmitBtn=Search">lawsuit</a>, and the bill would end a similar one extracting SEIU union dues from home health care workers. <b>Note: The bill was later amended in the Senate to make it a "right-to-work" bill for public employees, which is the version that ultimately was signed into law</b>.
