House-Senate Conference Committee will work out differences in legislation
LANSING -- Penalties for school districts, universities, community colleges and communities that approved union contracts before right-to-work laws went into effect were left in one version of education budget bills but out of all the Senate versions of the bill. The House Appropriations Committee approved an omnibus education bill that included the language that penalizes districts that approved contracts.
