US Senator Rand Paul has been sponsoring the National Right to Work act for the last six years of his career in Congress.
Now it looks like the legislation is gaining new life.
Check out the latest eblast I received from the National Right to Work Foundation:
I wanted to be the first to tell you about some big news out of Capitol Hill.
Since my last update about our cosponsor blitz to pick up new cosponsors to the National Right to Work Act (H.R. 785) and (S. 545) nine new cosponsors have been added!
Nine lawmakers that have pledged to stand with the nearly 80% of Americans that think it is wrong to force workers to pay dues or fees to a union boss just to get or keep a job.
The hard lesson of politics--just because a proposal is popular does not guarantee its passage or implementation in law.
The power of small groups, special interests, and large donation campaigns from labor unions and corporate donors can undermine the freedom-loving will of the people time and again.
It's time for us to stand up to these corrupt, corrosive influences in our political culture.
And that is why ... associations like the National Right to Work Foundation exist.
You see Arthur, the National Right to Work Act would not add a single word to Federal Law.
It would simply repeal sections of the National Labor Relations Act that permit forced unionism.
Repealing bad law is better than passing good laws, and stopping bad laws from passage and enactment is the best of all.
Your generous support has allowed the Committee to implement and continue its cutting edge program of email, direct mail, telephone campaigns, targeted internet ads, and personal lobbying of lawmakers to get them on board.
But as you know, union bosses are still reeling from the passage of six new State Right to Work bills in only the last five years, and are determined to kill the bills before they see the light of day in Congress.
Which states when right to work in the last five years?
5. West Virginia

We are still hoping and waiting for New Hampshire, but Republicans will need to win more seats in the 400 seat state House, since they lost numbers in Election 2016, and before that the state legislature barely--just barely--passed a right-to-work bill, only to watch former Governor Maggie Hassan veto it.
That is why your continued support is needed so the Committee can continue pushing for votes on the National Right to Work Act.
Thank you for all you do for worker freedom.
