MI Governor Granholm Vetos Anti-Ergonomics Bill

Calling the Michigan legislature's attempt to stop the state from issuing worker protections from back injuries and other strains and sprains "a solution in search of a problem," Governor Jennifer Granholm vetoed a bill that would have stopped Michigan state OSHA from enacting new ergonomic standards for the workplace.

Republicans predicted that the sky would fall.
Republicans said ergonomics rules should be voluntary and argued that mandatory rules would kill jobs, discourage companies from locating in Michigan and cost businesses at least $500 million.
