INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) -- After weeks of consideration, Governor Mitch Daniels came out in support of Right to Work Legislation.

The Governor released a statement Thursday afternoon saying it is time for Indiana to join the 22 states which have enacted Right to Work laws.

Daniels remarks come on the same day the issue was being debated by republican and democrats during a legislative conference.

Democrats fled to Illinois last year during the session, partially because they wanted to block Right to Work legislation.
