Assholism spreading across state lines:
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A panel of Ohio lawmakers made a bill to limit collective bargaining rights for 350,000 public workers even tougher for unions on Tuesday, as the state moved closer to Wisconsin-style restrictions.
A Republican-controlled House labor committee voted 9-6 along party lines to send the bill to the full House. Its approval of the legislation was met with chants of “Shame on you!” from the several hundred demonstrators gathered outside the hearing room.
“I don’t hear your supporters out there!” one man inside the room shouted to lawmakers.
A vote on the bill in the GOP-controlled House could come Wednesday. The Senate, also led by Republicans, passed the bill earlier this month on a 17-16 vote and would have to agree to the changes before Gov. John Kasich could sign it into law. The new Republican governor also supports the bill.
