IN House Approves Right-To-Work Bill

Jan 26, 2012

Despite five members voting against it, Indiana House Republicans still garnered enough votes to pass Right-To-Work legislation.

The bill passed by a 54-to-44 vote.

It goes to the Senate, where last week members there approved an identical measure, and then is expected to go to Governor Mitch Daniels desk.

His signature would make Indiana the 23rd state in the nation to adopt a bill banning unions and companies from charging dues to non-union members.

Supporters believe it’s a way to recruit new businesses, but opponents believe it lessen the strength of unions.
