Right to Work-Missouri

This past week, the Missouri House voted to approve “Right to Work”; 

  92  Yes (for Right to Work)

  66  No (against Right to Work) - 23 Republicans/42 Democrats/1 Independent

    5 Absent  

163 Total

Proponents of the measure in the House will need 109 votes to override an expected veto of the Bill by the Governor, if a veto override vote occurs.

The Bill now goes to the Senate for consideration. Our goal now is to persuade the Senate to stall “Right to Work” in their Chamber so that a veto by the Governor becomes unnecessary

Please take a few minutes to write and thank your Representatives who voted against Right To Work!
