Could New Hampshire be the 23rd Right To Work State?

Maybe, at least,  according to Stephen Moore’s Wall Street Journal Political Diary note:

With all eyes on Wisconsin this past week, overlooked has been the conservative policy changes that are moving ahead in New Hampshire. In recent days the New Hampshire House, where the GOP controls nearly three-quarters of the 400 seats, passed a bill to repeal the state cap-and-trade law that imposes a tax on energy use and a bill to make New Hampshire a Right-To-Work state.

Democratic Gov. John Lynch has vowed to veto both bills, but my sources in Concord say there’s a chance that the vetoes could be overridden. Meanwhile, Republicans are also set to pass a spending reduction bill with the kinds of public sector pension reforms that have incited protests from the labor unions in the Midwest.

Thanks largely to aggressive grass-roots activism by members of the National Right to Work Committee, the number of congressional cosponsors of the forced-dues repeal legislation introduced in the U.S. House and Senate early this year continues to rise. S.525 and H.R.2571, respectively introduced early in the 2019-20 Congress by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.), had a combined total of nearly 100 sponsors as this Newsletter went to press in early October. These essentially identical bills would not add a single word to federal labor law. Instead, they would simply repeal the current provisions in the federal code that authorize and promote the termination of employees for refusal to pay dues or fees to an unwanted union.
