A public hearing on the right to work bill begins at 10:00 a.m. in the State Capitol's hearing room. Anyone looking to speak at this hearing will have about three to five minutes to talk. Following the public hearing a committee will go behind closed doors to move the bill to the State Senate floor. About 18 hours later, the senate will meet and stay in session until the bill is voted upon.
