- Wisconsin Democrats plan to debate a right-to-work bill into the night, and possibly the early morning, with little to no hope of stopping its passage.
Republicans have a 63-36 majority in the Assembly, where debate of the bill was expected to begin early Thursday afternoon.
Speaker Robin Vos says he doesn't expect every Republican to vote for it, but he says there will be far more than 50 votes to pass it.
That won't stop Democrats from offering amendments to change the bill, all of which Vos says will be rejected.
Democrats see the measure as an attack on their key constituency of organized labor.
Republicans say the goal is to give workers the freedom to choose whether to pay union dues.
Governor Scott Walker plans to sign it Monday.
