In July 2011, Governor Snyder signed the “Michigan Fair & Open Competition in Governmental Construction Act,” which prohibits government entities from awarding contracts with Project Labor Agreements (PLAs). In response, the Michigan Building & Construction Trades Council, AFL-CIO sued to block the law.

The NFIB Legal Center has filed an amicus brief in support of Michigan's appeal.
