State Rep. Poleski’s HB4052 is going to the Committee on Commerce and Trade tomorrow at 10:30am. HB4052 is a zombie version of the Anti-CBA bill that died on the House floor last year. If passed this bill would destroy local governments ability to make economic decisions on behalf of their citizens. This legislation would give Lansing politicians too much control over our local communities.
This bill is anti-worker and anti community!
Contact Representatives on the House Commerce and Trade Committee and tell them that you support the CBA ordinance and that they should as well. This action against community and workers needs to stop. HB 4052 needs to die in committee.
HB4052: “A bill to limit the powers of units of local government to adopt, enforce, or administer certain local mandates for employers; to prohibit local minimum wage, benefit, or leave requirements; to prohibit certain ordinances regulating the development of real property within units of local government; and to void local requirements that are adopted in violation of this act.”
