Governor Snyder signed two bills late Tuesday afternoon that makes Michigan the 24th right to work state in the nation. Rather than having a public signing ceremony, the governor signed the bills in the privacy of his office.

The GOP-controlled House passed the two bills hours earlier that were previously approved by the Senate. One dealt with public-sector workers and another focused on the private sector. Both chambers had approved a version of the private sector bill last week.

The legislation bans requirements that nonunion employees pay unions for negotiating contracts and other services.
