FREEDOM: Missouri Becomes 26th State to Pass Right to Work Laws

Late last night, the Missouri legislature passed a right to work law making the state the 26th to do so.

The bill will make a quick stop in the House and it will then go to the Governor.

A right-to-work bill passed through the Missouri Senate Tuesday evening after a more than 8 hour filibuster by Democrats.

The bill passed out of a Senate committee Monday night and came up for a vote Tuesday.

There has been a lot of backlash for the bill from not only democrats, but union workers from all over the state showed up Monday wearing shirts that say “right-to-work is wrong for Missouri.”

The bill hit the Senate floor a little after 10:00 a.m. Tuesday.

Under the measure, unions would be banned from requiring fees they usually collect from their workers, and that would let members skip on paying their dues.

Missouri Governor Nixon is promising to veto the bill.
