Gov. Rick Snyder is expected to sign legislation that passed this evening to strip public employees of collective bargaining rights and dismantle teacher tenure.
With hundreds of teachers and education support professionals looking on from the gallery above the legislative chamber, the GOP-led Senate passed the four-bill package. House Bills 4625-4628 previously passed in the House.
"This is a shameful day in Michigan," said Sen. John Gleason, D-Flushing, who opposed the bills.
