INDIANA HOUSE PASSES RIGHT-TO-WORK BILL

Law prohibiting forced union dues now has clear path to governor's desk.

INDIANAPOLIS — Mackinac Center Senior Investigative Analyst Anne Schieber reports that the Indiana House passed House Bill 1001 today by a 54-44 margin. The legislation would make it illegal to force a worker to pay union dues or fees as a condition of employment.

The House was considered the main stumbling block to passage of a right-to-work law. While remaining in Indianapolis, Indiana's House Democrats had been avoiding House sessions, but returned to the chamber today for what turned out to be a raucous debate and vote.

The Senate passed a similar bill earlier this week. HB 1001 will need Senate approval, but with passage by the House the enactment of an Indiana right-to-work law is all but guaranteed.
