Assembly Labor Committee schedules hearing on right-to-work

Posted:
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Wisconsin state Assembly's Labor Committee has scheduled a 10-hour hearing on Monday on the right-to-work bill that's rocketing through the Legislature.

The committee announced Thursday that the hearing will begin at 10 a.m. Monday and conclude no later than 8 p.m. An executive session to vote on the bill has not yet been scheduled.

The full Assembly is expected to take up the bill later in the week, most likely on Thursday.

The Senate passed right-to-work with a 17-15 vote on Wednesday. Republicans have a much wider majority in the Assembly, making passage there all-but-certain.

Opponents of the measure were upset when the Senate hearing Tuesday night was abruptly cut short 40 minutes earlier than promised after it had gone on for more than eight hours.
