The House Education and Labor Committee will meet Wednesday to mark up the union-backed Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act that ABC and a coalition of other industry organizations have fought to oppose. The bill has 208 Democrat cosponsors at this time and Democrats ultimately hope to get the bill to the floor before the end of the term. Every U.S. Senator running in the Democratic presidential primary is also a co-sponsor of the bill in the Senate. The markup is an important step closer to that goal, even if the bill will be blocked in the Republican-controlled Senate.
