Right to Work Bill Being Pushed By Norquist Matches ALEC Model

Earlier this week, Grover Norquist and national extremist groups announced before Missouri leaders that the State House would be voting on so-called "right-to-work" legislation next week. The bill, as shown below, is a direct match for American Legislative Exchange Council's (ALEC) model Right to Work Act.
