Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder says state development officials are already hearing from manufacturers interested in relocating, just 10 days after he signed new right-to-work legislation into law.
 
"The phone's already been ringing at the MEDC (Michigan Economic Development Corporation) since we passed that legislation," Snyder told reporters today, according to the Detroit News. "People are starting to look at Michigan."
 
The law, which goes into effect in March, is expected to impact union collective bargaining contracts across the state. Snyder told the paper it was "premature" to name interested companies, but he suggested the right-to-work law is already changing the view outside the state that Michigan is union stronghold.

"They are getting more inquiries from people that we hadn't heard from to say they were looking at us," Snyder said.
 
The Republican outlined other efforts aimed at drawing new businesses and development to the state. But he acknowledged that it could be "several years" before the state realizes the full impact of right-to-work and other policies aimed at helping the state reverse years of economic decline.
