Assembly's right-to-work authors kick off day of hearings

The authors of the Assembly's version of so-called right-to-work legislation prefaced a daylong public hearing today by vowing to keep the bill simple.

"From the beginning, we've kind of been working with the Senate," said Rep. Chris Kapenga, R-Delafield, who was joined during a briefing by Reps. Dan Knodl, R-Germantown; Dave Craig, R-Big Bend; and Labor Committee Chairman Andre Jacque, R-De Pere. "The final product from the Senate is exactly what we were looking for. This actually is a very simple bill."

And the bill should stay that way, Kapenga said. He dismissed as unnecessary, for instance, the notion of a 90-day delay in implementation if Gov. Scott Walker signs the bill.

"That discussion has already happened, and I have not seen any convincing evidence that tells me that should take place," Kapenga said. "I don't think that is a valid concern, and we'll continue to go with the bill as it is."

Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, R-Juneau, said last week that he does not want the bill back in the Senate.
