Wisconsin Assembly committee to vote on right-to-work bill

 

March 4, 2015

MADISON The Wisconsin state Assembly's Labor Committee is meeting to consider changes to the right-to-work bill, although it's nearly certain that none will be adopted.

Republicans who control the Assembly agreed to hold the meeting Wednesday in negotiations with Democrats who objected to the original plan that did not include holding an executive session on the measure.

Democrats will be able to offer amendments. The right-to-work bill passed the Senate last week, so if the Assembly changes it the Senate will have to vote again.

The committee meeting comes before the full Assembly plans to debate the bill over a 24-hour period scheduled to end by 9 a.m. Friday.
