Indiana House Dems end chamber boycott, GOP plans initial vote on divisive labor bill
By Associated Press, Published: January 9
INDIANAPOLIS A divisive labor bill is back in Republican hands after Indiana House Democrats on Monday ended a three-day boycott of the chamber to stall the measure.
Republican House Speaker Brian Bosma said the right-to-work bill will get a committee vote Tuesday morning and could make it out of his chamber by the end of the week if Democrats continue to attend House sessions.
Republicans want to make Indiana the first state in more than a decade to enact right-to-work legislation, which bans employment contracts that require employees to pay mandatory union fees for representation. Supporters claim it would bring more jobs to Indiana, where the unemployment rate has crept back up to around 9 percent in the recent months. Opponents say it is a move aimed at breaking unions in Indiana and claim it would depress wages for all workers.

Not "bold", "innovative", or "courageous"?
Cheat to win.
Cheat when losing.
Lie all the time.
CW-II is coming, libs.
Live it and love it.
Yep, I noted that as well. I cannot wait for this bill as I believe WI & IN & even MI will make life miserable for IL Democrats.
“Daniels has made the labor bill one of his top priorities for the 2012 session...”
Good for Mitch. Here in Texas our dream, for our governor, is to crack down on Illegals as Mitch is cracking down on union corruption.
But that won’t happen, as our governor is not ‘heartless’.
They would leave if they thought they would lose the vote so it’s likely the corruption is working and right to work will go down in flames.
