Michigan officials say they've spent about $90,000 on informational posters related to the state's new right-to-work law. reports Friday the money was spent to print and mail the posters that outline the basics of the law for public land private employers.

The money comes from a $1 million appropriation that was part of the legislation signed into law last year by Republican Gov. Rick Snyder. Critics of the legislation were upset that it included the spending provision, which makes it immune from a voter referendum.

The state also has hired a specialist to help implement the law.

Under the law, unionized workers can no longer be forced to pay union dues or fees after the expiration of any collective bargaining agreement in place on March 28.
