State lawmakers have sent Gov. Rick Snyder a bill that would ban local minimum wage and benefit laws. The bill does not apply to ordinances adopted before this year.

Republican supporters of the legislation say having a patchwork of different wage laws across the state makes Michigan less attractive to businesses.

Democrats and some Republicans have criticized the bill. They say it's an attack on local control.
