It looks like the Iowa Legislature might be gearing up for yet another overheated, rhetorical battle over the state’s “Right to Work” law. House Joint Resolution 1 — which is sponsored by all 53 Republican members of the House — would ask Iowa voters to inscribe the 66-year-old state law into the state constitution. The legislation is likely to go nowhere in the Democratic-controlled Senate — other than to allow many Democratic lawmakers to pay lip service to their loyalty to labor. This all seems much ado about nothing.
