Of course we will believe when we see it.
However, this important legislation protecting workers choices would be the shot in the arm for a still ailing Michigan economy. It would create a more competitive atmosphere not only with other states, but would allow the global competitiveness we have previously enjoyed to return. Its about time we do this, yet have faced a number of obstacles that ought not have been there. The election clarified the will of the people sufficiently enough to understand that they are tired of having Michigan run by a few elite labor bosses, and its time for a change.

We'll take it where we can.
