Indiana will become the first state in over a decade to pass right-to-work legislation.
Noblesville, IN (PRWEB) February 07, 2012
Hamilton County Young Republican Chairman Mario Massillamany announces that the Hamilton County Lincoln Day Dinner will be held at the Ritz Charles on February 7, 2012 at 7:00pm. Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels will be the keynote speaker.
At the event, Gov. Daniels will talk about how Indiana became the 23rd state to pass right-to-work legislation, the adventures of hosting the Super Bowl, and how great a need it is that our politicians address the debt crisis facing our country.
Gov. Daniels, who considered running for president last year and gave the Republican response to President Barack Obama's State of the Union message last Tuesday, has made passage of right-to-work one of his priorities for this year.
An Indiana Senate committee has passed a right-to-work bill, and Governor Mitch Daniels says he is ready to sign the bill once it clears the full senate. Indiana could be a right-to-work state as early as Wednesday. 22 states are already right-to-work states. A right-to-work law would give an employee the option to pay into a union or not.
"Indiana will become the first state in over a decade to pass right-to-work legislation," said Hamilton County Young Republican Chairman Mario Massillamany. “This is a solid win for those who believe that union labor costs and work rules have become an obstacle to job growth."
It is a frightening loss to labor leaders. It is an even more worrisome development to Democrats, who have long fed on Big Labor’s steady stream of campaign cash. In the 2010 election cycle, labor spent $96.7 million, 94% of which went to Democrats. That doesn’t count the invaluable “get out the vote” organizing and other grass-roots efforts unions brought to the contest.
Hamilton County is the fastest growing county in Indiana. It is the third largest Republican counties in the United States. Every elected office in the county is possessed by a Republican.
