(Indianapolis, Ind.) - State lawmakers will again consider passing a right to work law in January.
The issue prompted Democrats in the House to leave Indiana for several weeks this year to block the bill, but the Interim Study Committee on Employment Issues voted Wednesday to recommend passing the legislation next year.
Union workers protested the vote, saying the measure will drive down wages.
Sen. Phil Boots (R-Crawfordsville) said he understands the idea is divisive, but added he thinks it's the right thing to do.
Democrats say it's part of a radical agenda by majority Republicans.
