INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) -- It could be déjà vu all over again at the Indiana State House.

As Right to Work Protesters marched outside the State Capitol, the majority of House Democrats were not seated as the session got underway at 1:30.

House Minority Leader, Pat Bauer, says Democrats will stay off the Chamber floor until the public is better informed about the Right to Work legislation.

Bauer says the party is not planning a walkout, but want to filibuster the measure they believe is being pushed through the legislature.

House Democrats left the state during the past legislative session over the Right to Work issue as well as education reform.

Wednesday's session ended without a quorum.
