Progress Michigan Calls on Gov. Snyder to Veto Death Star Bill
HB4052 is undemocratic, unnecessary and only helps corporations
LANSING — Following passage of HB4052 in the Senate, also known as the Death Star Bill, Progress Michigan is calling on Gov. Rick Snyder to veto the irresponsible and undemocratic legislation.
“This is yet another corporate attack on working people in Michigan, and worse yet, it takes an axe to democracy and local control. Gov. Snyder needs to veto this legislation to not only protect working people, but to preserve local control,” said Lonnie Scott, executive director of Progress Michigan. “Gov. Snyder has shown disdain for local democracy in the past through his undemocratic emergency management program and it’s time for him to do the right thing and veto this legislation. This legislation reaches new levels of hypocrisy for the Michigan GOP, which claims to be the party of local control.”
