Indiana Senate Drops Anti-Union Bill

The Indiana legislature has decided to drop the "right-to-work" provision aimed at reducing the influence of unions, following calls by Gov. Mitch Daniels (R-IN) to kill the measure and the abandonment of the state capitol by House Democrats to prevent a vote, the Louisville Courier-Journal reports.

Said Senate President David Long (R): "It was a mistake."

Of course, as Ben Smith notes, Daniels didn't want a fight because he's already taken, by executive order when he took office, much of what Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) wants in his stand off with unions.
