Protestors Disrupt Michigan Legislative Hearing on Election Law Bills

On May 22, the Michigan House Local Government and Urban Policy Committee passed some election law bills, but angry protestors in the room made it necessary for marshalls to escort some members of the Committee out of the hearing room. See this story. The bills require government photo-ID to vote absentee, and place restrictions on groups that wish to register voters, and make it more difficult in some circumstances for local governments to retain control over their spending and budgetary authority. Thanks to Thomas Jones for the link.
