Rep. Breen Questions Sponsor of AFSCME No-Strike Legislation

On Tuesday, February 16, 2016, Rep. Peter Breen vigorously questioned the sponsor of Illinois House Bill 580, Rep. Chris Welch. The bill is commonly known as the AFSCME no-strike bill, and it is almost identical to last year's Senate Bill 1229, which was vetoed by Governor Rauner. If this bill were to become law, it would take the governor out the contract negotiation process and replace him with unelected arbitrators. Click on the youtube video to watch the floor debate.
