LANSING, MI (MPRN)-- Police officers from across the state are in Lansing preparing for protests as lawmakers get ready to vote on so-called “right-to-work” bills. Michigan Public Radio’s Jake Neher has more:
Dozens of State Police have gathered in a hallway in the Capitol’s lower level, cordoned off by blue curtains. This is their base of operations in the building this week as hundreds – maybe thousands -- of protesters are expected to fill the upper levels.
In one closet, police have stashed helmets and other riot gear.
