LANSING, Mich. — A resolution introduced in the state legislature is urging an indicted Michigan representative to resign.

The resolution is in regards to State Representative Larry Inman's conduct.

He pleaded not guilty in May to federal charges of extortion, bribery and lying to an F.B.I. agent.

Inman is accused of urging a union to round up campaign contributions in exchange for a promise lawmakers would block the repeal of a wage law.

He has refused calls to step down.

The resolution introduced by House Speaker Lee Chattfield calls on Inman to resign or face the potential of further disciplinary action.
