INDIANAPOLIS (Reuters) - The state Senate approved a measure to make Indiana the first right-to-work state in the traditional manufacturing heartland of the nation.
The Republican-led Senate voted 28 to 22 in favor of the right-to-work legislation, with nine of the majority Republicans voting against.
The measure still must clear the Republican-majority House of Representatives, where Democrats have been trying to stall it. The proposed law would mean that workers would not be required to pay union dues at businesses in the state.
