For the first time ever, the Missouri House has approved a right-to-work bill that curbs union rights.
But the House’s 92-66 vote Wednesday afternoon was far short of the number – 109 -- needed to withstand a likely veto by Gov. Jay Nixon, a Democrat with close union ties.
Final House approval came Thursday morning. The measure now moves to the Senate, where it faces an uncertain future and a possible Democratic filibuster.
