Michigan lawmakers could vote any day now to repeal the state's prevailing wage law.

But people in support of the law set to hold a rally at the State Capitol in Lansing at 11 a.m. Wednesday.

The law requires contractors pay union-scale wages on public construction jobs. Supporters of the law say it has ensured that construction workers have been paid fairly for decades.

The Board of State Canvassers approved signatures for the ballot measure last week. Now the Legislature has 40 days to either approve it themselves or let it go on the November ballot.
