POLITICO has the story. Indiana’s Democrats are taking their que from their counterparts in Wisconsin.
Democrats in Indiana’s legislature are said to be fleeing the state Tuesday to block a vote on an anti-union bill, repeating the move used by Wisconsin Democrats to avoid voting on legislation there.
Members of the Indiana House are headed to Illinois or Kentucky to avoid having to vote on a “right-to-work” law, which would allow non-union members to work in unionized companies, the Indianapolis Star reported.
When the House was called into session Tuesday morning, just two of its 40 Democratic members were on hand. In all, 58 legislators were present in the chamber, nine fewer than the 67 needed for a quorum.
