The Indianapolis Star reports that Republican lawmakers have withdrawn a so-called "right to work" bill that drew thousands of Indiana workers to the Capitol in protest this week and spurred Democratic lawmakers to boycott state Senate proceedings to prevent a vote on the anti-worker bill.This would be way more awesome if it weren't because Mitch Daniels wants to be president and doesn't want the bad press and told them to lay off.
But it is unclear if the senators will return, because the Star reports: "Last night they issued a statement saying they had concerns about 11 bills, including other labor-related bills, education reforms and the proposed next state budget. They singled out two in particular: the right-to-work bill and one which lets state tax dollars pay for private school tuition for some families."
But wev. I'll take it.
