A measure placed before the Indiana Senate was approved, making Indiana the first of the heartland states to allow a right-to-work bill. The 28-22 vote to make Indiana a right-to-work state by the Senate. The Republican-led Senate had nine of its majority vote against the bill. This caused them to pass the bill onto higher levels of state government.

Although the bill has passed the Senate, it must still pass through the House of Representatives, which faces the challenge of Democrats that have been working to stall it. If passed, the law would allow workers to not pay businesses union dues within the state. The state will have no right to require potential employees to join a union upon being hired.


The bill has faced quite a lot of controversy. Republicans that do not support the right to work bill have been very vocal about their disapproval. At first, it seemed that it would not pass because of the Republican majority. However, the nine Republicans that turned against the bill enabled it to pass through. In addition to it, disapproving Republicans have went as far as to attack the governor for his change of heart regarding the issue. Despite its difficulty, it seems that the bill is on its way to allow the state to be a right to work state.
