Gov. Daniels ready to sign right-to-work legislation

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- Gov. Mitch Daniels said he's ready to sign legislation to make Indiana the first state in a decade to enact a right-to-work law.

The state senate is expected to take the final vote Wednesday. The bill prohibits labor contracts that require workers to pay union representation fees.

The house approved the proposal last week, and Republicans on the senate's labor committee voted 6 to 1 to advance it Monday.

The senate committee's three Democrats boycotted the meeting in protest. Saying there was no justification for rushing the bill through.
