Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder (R) met with Democrats in Michigan's congressional delegation on Monday morning on the controversial "right to work" bill being fast-tracked by the GOP-controlled state legislature.
Sen. Carl Levin, along with Reps. Hansen Clarke, Jon Conyers, Dave Curson, John Dingell, Sander Levin and Gary Peters, were in the meeting, according to a congressional aide involved. Rep.-elect Dan Kildee also attended. Sen. Debbie Stabenow was not at the meeting because of a previously scheduled tour of Hurricane Sandy damage in New Jersey, but she met with Snyder separately over the weekend and called in to the delegation's post-meeting press conference.
At the press conference, Levin said the Democratic lawmakers had urged the governor to veto the right-to-work bill or at least ask the legislature to delay its Tuesday vote on it. Snyder told them he would "seriously" consider their concerns, Levin said.
