2011 House Bill 4929

Senate Roll Call 119: Passed

To prohibit school districts from using taxpayer resources (including their payroll processing systems) to deduct union dues or fees from employees’ pay, and then sending the money to a union. This practice is the current norm, so the bill would require unions to make alternative arrangements to collect dues or fees from school employees. The Senate added a modest appropriation, which has the effect of making it "referendum-proof." See <a href="http://www.michiganvotes.org/2011-HJR-W">House Joint Resolution W</a> for an explanation.
