Local Legislators React to State-of-the-State Address

During his State-of-the-State address, Governor Mitch Daniels said Indiana is one of the most business-friendly states in the country.

And according to one local legislator, that is why a Right-To-Work bill is unnecessary.

Democratic Representative Sheila Klinker says the current business climate means Indiana should keep the status quo.

However, Lafayette-area Republican Representative Randy Truitt says the state can still improve, and pushing ahead with the bill will make Indiana more marketable for recruiting business.

House Democrats walked out of the session Tuesday after the House Labor Committee sent the Right-To-Work bill to the floor.

Klinker says she is not sure when her colleagues will return.
