Item Pricing Bill Moves Forward

Michigan's law requiring individual price tags on most retail items appears headed for extinction.
The Republican-led state Senate on Tuesday approved a bill by a 24-13 vote that would repeal the item pricing requirement.
The House already has approved the bill so it could soon be headed to Gov. Rick Snyder, who called for the repeal in January.
Retail trade groups support the change, saying the current law results in higher prices. The revised regulations would require retailers to post an item's price where it can be clearly seen but would not require price tags on individual items.
Unions say grocery store jobs would be lost if item pricing is repealed. Some Democrats oppose repeal, saying it would do away with consumer protections.
