Batchelder: No Right-To-Work Vote In Lame Duck Session; Redistricting, Photo ID Unlikely

Speaker Batchelder

Speaker Bill Batchelder tried to put to rest speculation this week that Republicans would ram controversial anti-union legislation through the General Assembly during the final weeks of session.

As Republicans appear poised to make further gains in the Nov. 4 election, many Democrats and union supporters are concerned the GOP will pass a proposal that would prohibit anyone from being required to join a union as a condition of employment.
