BREAKING: House finalizes deal on OT, minimum wage

Looks like they were able to work this out. Via the AP:
The House on Tuesday also wrapped up other parts of a package designed at keeping the status quo for overtime eligibility in Michigan while raising the minimum wage.

Legislation passed by a 103-3 vote would provide a state tax credit for low-income workers. The legislation, which also is headed toward Granholm's approval, would allow a state earned-income tax credit on top of the existing federal credit. The credit would start at 10 percent in 2008 and rise to 20 percent in 2009.
