Opponents still fighting against right-to-work law

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- Opponents of right-to-work say they are not giving up.

The house passed the controversial bill Wednesday. The bill bans mandatory union fees, as part of employment.

The head of the Indiana NAACP spoke out at the statehouse Thursday. She claims lawmakers are trying to "force poison down our throats."

"Do you rise to the occasion, work together, find and implement solutions to enjoy a greater consensus, or senators, representatives?” said Barbara Bolling. “Do you turn your back on those who have been the blood flowing through the veins of this state?"

The bill now moves to the senate where a vote is expected next week. Gov. Daniels has said he will sign it.
