INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) -- Governor Mitch Daniels is being accused of flip flopping his position on the right to work issue in a new ad put out by opponents of the bill.

It takes part of a presentation made by Daniels in 2006, in which he said he would certainly not try to change Indiana's right to work law.

A spokesperson for Daniels says the Governor has studied the issue for the last seven years.

Jane Jankowski, Governor Daniels' Spokesperson says, "And led to his support of Right to Work legislation. The first thing is that Indiana misses many job opportunities. And the second is the significant downturn in the national economy."

Jankowski says the increasing competition for jobs has convinced the Governor even more that Indiana needs to seek every advantage at its disposal.
