LANSING, Mich. (AP) - House Democratic leaders say they can't stop the Republican-led Legislature from moving right-to-work legislation limiting unions' power.
But they plan to vote down other bills including one helping finance a Detroit project featuring a new home for the NHL's Detroit Red Wings.
House Democratic Leader Richard Hammel told reporters Monday that rejecting the tax credits for the $650 million development is part of a protest against the rushed actions by Republican lawmakers and GOP Gov. Rick Snyder in the session's waning days.
Democratic officials say they also expect that the Detroit-related legislation passed last week by the Senate still will be approved by the House.
The Legislature introduced and approved right-to-work bills Thursday as thousands of protesters massed inside and outside the Capitol. Snyder has pledged to sign them.
