Right to Work Hits Wall in the Granite State

Don’t expect New Hampshire to become a right-to-work state anytime soon now that legislation has failed to win approval.

The senate approved a bill and, the new governor had suggested he supported it, but the legislation did not get through the House of Representatives last Thursday. Some GOP lawmakers also opposed it.

“So the current state is that there is no right-to-work law,” says Ben Wilterdink of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). “In a procedural vote after Right to Work was defeated in the House, they went one step further and voted to what’s called indefinitely postpone consideration of it, which basically means that for the next two years the House cannot vote on a right-to-work bill that originated in the House.”
