Ask your House member to write Paycheck Protection into law

Posted on

This week, the Missouri House of Representatives is expected to attempt an override of Gov. Jay Nixon’s veto of a Paycheck Protection bill.

Paycheck Protection would require public employee labor unions to get annual written permission from each employee before withholding union dues or using those dues for political purposes.

The proposal, contained in House Bill 1891, is sponsored by Rep. Holly Rehder, a Republican from Sikeston.

A veto override requires 109 votes in the Missouri House. Earlier this year, the bill passed the House on two occasions with 110 and 109 votes.

Based on these earlier votes, the veto override is expected to pass or fail by a small margin. Please contact your House member and ask him or her to support Paycheck Protection.
