INDIANA (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Is the state's new Right to Work law violating free speech?

An attorney representing the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 150 says it does.

The attorney cites a US Supreme Court ruling that allowed corporations and unions the ability to spend unlimited amounts of money on campaign ads as part of his argument.

The lawyer says the law violates free speech because it will not allow unions to collect dues that helps pay for political speeches.
