Lafayette Group Wants Public Hearings on Right-To-Work

Jan 6, 2012

A local group fighting against proposed Right-To-Work legislation is calling for more input on the issue.

Lafayette Working Families is holding a news conference at 3 p.m. Friday at the Tippecanoe County Courthouse to encourage legislators to hold statewide hearings on the proposed bill.

Republican Randy Truitt supports Right-To-Work and says there is benefit to these types of information sessions, but adds that with the session underway, those events will delay progress.

House Democrats are trying to stall voting on the measure by preventing a quorum.

They held out of the first two days of the session in an effort to stop the bill from moving forward.

House Speaker Brian Bosma says he wants a vote on Right-To-Work by next week.
