The Ohio State Senate will vote this afternoon on a bill to curtail collective bargaining rights for public-sector unions, the AP reports.
The measure passed a Senate committee this morning, after Republicans replaced a GOP Senator who opposed the bill, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer. The legislation is backed by Ohio’s newly-elected Republican Governor John Kasich and is expected to pass the GOP-controlled Senate.
More than 8,000 protesters descended on Columbus Tuesday to protest the bill.
