Today, the Missouri House took a major step forward in the effort to give our state’s workers the freedom to work without being forced to join or pay a union, passing a Right to Work bill with a commanding vote of 100 to 59.
Right to Work is on the move in the Missouri Senate, as well. The Senate General Laws Committee voted their version of the Right to Work bill do pass yesterday, and today it was added to the Senate’s formal calendar.
This quick movement on Right to Work legislation has sent a message that our state will finally pass this common sense law in 2017, and bill sponsors Rep. Holly Rehder, Rep. Bill White, Rep. Bill Lant, Rep. Rick Brattin, Rep. Charlie Davis, and Sen. Dan Brown deserve thanks for their hard work.
We also want to thank you for everything you have done to encourage the passage of Right to Work legislation. During the coming weeks, please help keep the pressure up. Tell your friends and family about the benefits of Right to Work, and call your local lawmakers to encourage them to quickly pass this important bill.
With your help, we can make sure Missouri becomes a Right to Work state, paving the way for increased economic development and more freedom for our workforce.
