Republican Lawmakers seek explanation of long-term contracts

LANSING (WKZO) -- Republican lawmakers in the Michigan House of Representatives are questioning long-term contracts reached in some school districts ahead of the implementation of the state's right-to-work law.

Members of the Taylor School District and Wayne State University will be appearing before the House Oversight Committee and the House Appropriations Committee on Higher Education.  Lawmakers want an explanation of the multi-year deals approved recently that will require teachers and instructors to continue to pay union dues.

Democrats charge the Republicans are trying to intimidate school districts around the state.
