LANSING, Mich. (WJBK) -- Security is expected to be very tight Tuesday as Michigan lawmakers are in line to vote on proposed right-to-work legislation.

Fox 2 political correspondent Tim Skubick says 150 troopers will be on the beat around and inside the Capitol building as they anticipate upwards of 10,000 protesters.

He also tells us most of those protesters will have to remain outside the building since the state fire marshall says capacity inside is only 2,000 demonstrators.

Skubick has more on other large demonstrations that have happened at the Capitol in his video report.

    You've heard the phrase "talk something to death." Turns out in the legislative arena and the attempt to ban minors from using E-Cigs, you can apparently talk something to life, too.
