As right-to-work opponents prepare for Wisconsin's fast-tracked bill to move to the Assembly next week, Republicans have launched a petition drive for supporters.
A criticism leveled at Republicans frequently throughout the Senate debate was that the bill was driven by wealthy special interests, not constituents. A new website hosted by Assembly Republicans, WisconsinWorkerFreedom.com, includes the petition and a collection of arguments in favor of the bill.
Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, R-Rochester, said he is confident the Assembly will pass the bill next week. The Assembly expects to take it up on March 5, with a Labor Committee hearing scheduled for 10 a.m. on Monday.
