Bauer: Indiana "Right-to-Work" Amendment Could Be Ready Friday

The leader of the boycotting Indiana House Democrats says they're working hard to find a way for a voter referendum on the contentious right-to-work bill will survive questions on whether it's allowed under the state constitution. Democratic leader Patrick Bauer said the proposal could be prepared as soon as tomorrow. That could clear the way for the 35 boycotting Democrats to return to the House floor, allowing action on the right-to-work bill and other legislation. Bauer also said he didn't expect any court rulings until at least Friday on the legal challenge Democrats have filed over the plan by majority Republicans to dock the Democrats' state paychecks to cover $1,000-a-day fines that started Wednesday. Republican leaders say they believe the fines are legal and will be upheld.
