Republican Lt. Governor Peter Kinder said this after the vote.

Historic win for Right to Work! Minutes ago, the Missouri House, by a vote of 78-68, gave first-round approval to HB 1770, the Right to Work bill. Worker freedom advances, and we are that much closer to moving Missouri’s economy forward. #tcot #RTW #freedom
