Pa, Gov. Corbett says state lacks will to pass 'right-to-work' legislation



Published: Mon, December 10, 2012 @ 6:00 p.m.

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Gov. Tom Corbett said today that Pennsylvania apparently lacks the political will to become a “right-to-work” state, a key issue for conservatives as Republicans in fellow industrial state Michigan prepare to pass such a law over the protests of organized labor.

Corbett, a first-term Republican, has never made right-to-work legislation a priority while he battles unions on other issues, and he did not say whether he would support such a bill if it reached his desk. Right-to-work bills languished in the GOP-controlled Legislature without even a committee vote during the recently completed two-year session.

“There is not much of a movement to do it and lot of it has to do with the politics at the local level, at the county level and at the state level,” Corbett said during a regular appearance on the Dom Giordano Program on WPHT-AM in Philadelphia. “Until I see a strong will to get legislation passed, we have a lot of other things that we have to get passed.”
