What's next in the Wis. right-to-work debate?

The Wisconsin Senate is expected to take up a contentious right-to-work bill Wednesday afternoon that would make Wisconsin the 25th state in the nation to adopt such a law.

Republican leaders have fast-tracked the bill and Democrats are upset after the Senate's labor committee cut short a public hearing on the bill Tuesday night.

"Dozens of people who had waited all day to speak flew into a rage, hurling profanities at the three GOP lawmakers on the panel," the Associated Press reported.

Patrick Marley, who covers politics for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, joined MPR News' Tom Weber to talk about last night's hearing, what's next and the larger politics surrounding the right-to-work debate.
