INDIANAPOLIS (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - The "Right-to-Work" bill will take the spotlight in the House chamber on Tuesday.

Debate is expected to begin on the floor with Democrats pushing for amendments, including one to put the "Right-to-Work" issue up for a public vote on the November ballot.

The hearing comes after a committee passed the controversial measure with no discussion last week.

House Republican leaders then agreed to hear the Democrats' proposals in a move to prevent more boycotts similar to the ones that stalled House business at the beginning of the month.
