A national group of conservative lawmakers is teaming with Indiana Republicans to push for "right-to-work" legislation and an end to the state's inheritance tax.
American Legislative Exchange Council Tax Policy Director Jonathan Williams said Wednesday the two issues are key measures that separate "rich states" from "poor states."
Sens. Jim Banks of Columbia City and Jim Buck of Kokomo joined Williams during an appearance at the Statehouse.
The "right-to-work" bill would ban employers from negotiating contracts with unions that require workers to pay union fees. Indiana's Republican House and Senate leaders said last month they will make passing the measure their top priority during the 2012 session.
The Indiana AFL-CIO has questioned the validity of ALEC's assertions and notes that the group is largely funded by corporate donors.
