The 23 Republicans and 1 Independent Who Voted Against ALEC's So-Called 'Right to Work' Attacks

Speaker John Diehl and House Republican Leaders may have pushed through ALEC's so-called 'right to work' legislation with a narrow majority, but make no mistake: Diehl fell far short of the numbers he'll need to override a gubernatorial veto, and Democratic Senators are certain to filibuster the bill if it's even brought to the Senate floor. 

An impressive bloc of twenty-two House Republicans stood up to their Speaker and ALEC's attacks on Missouri's middle class yesterday when the so-called 'right to work' legislation was brought to a vote. They are: 

  • Linda Black
  • Kathie Conway
  • Kevin Corlew
  • Robert Cornejo
  • Kevin Engler
  • Keith English
  • Paul Fitzwater
  • Elaine Gannon
  • Ron Hicks
  • Galen Higdon
  • Dave Hinson
  • Bill E. Kidd
  • Nick King
  • Bart Korman
  • Jeanie Lauer
  • John McCaherty
