Battleground Iowa: Horrific bills = Happy Dems

Excerpted from this post at Battleground Iowa

So much to say, so little time. It's Baaaa-aaaack: Just when you
thought that the Fair Share bill was dead and buried after Chester's
veto last year, it has reared its ugly head yet again. The Register is
reporting that various union leaders are pushing the governor to
support a plan that is described as a "major expansion" of the bill
that was originally proposed two years ago. The bill would mandate
that certain non-union employees who benefit from union agreements be
required to pay union fees, even if they want nothing to do with the
unions themselves. Though Chester previously vetoed this bill, it
seems much more likely that he will support it this time around. This
time, the bill was drafted by the governor's office, but has not yet
been introduced in the legislature.
