The rare joint committee meeting regarding “Right to Work” legislation is taking place in a packed gallery. The Democrats have again refused to leave quorum so no official business can be transacted. However, it will be impossible to slow the vote forever and Republicans are already looking to next week for a vote.
Meanwhile, the NFL Players Association released a statement this morning decrying the Indiana Republicans plan to “ram through so-called ‘right to work’ legislation.” (Read the entire release.)
“As Indianapolis proudly prepares to host the Super Bowl it should be a time to shine in the national spotlight and highlight the hardworking families that make Indiana run instead of launching political attacks on their basic rights,” the release stated. “This Super Bowl should be about celebrating the best of what Indianapolis has to offer, not about legislation that hurts the people of Indiana.”
