3-3-15 right to work hearing

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Opponents of right-to-work dominated hours of testimony in a Wisconsin state Assembly committee that’s hearing the fast-tracked proposal.  The Assembly Labor Committee hearing stretched into the night Monday, with union workers far outnumbering supporters. The Republican-backed measure would disallow private-sector businesses from entering into contracts with unions that require the paying of union dues. The hearing was scheduled to end at 8 p.m., but committee chairman Rep. Andre Jacque has said he wants everyone to be heard.  A Senate committee hearing on the measure was cut about 40 minutes short.  The Senate passed the bill last week and the Assembly is expected to vote on it Thursday. Gov. Scott Walker has said he will sign it into law by the end of the week.
