The Illinois Senate has voted to override Gov. Bruce Rauner's veto of legislation that prohibits local governments from establishing "right to work" zones.
The Senate voted 42-13 Tuesday to override the governor on a subject dear to the Republican's heart but which labor unions oppose. "Right to work" refers to a policy that allows individual workers to choose not to join a labor union but still have benefits and protections of union membership.
Lincolnshire officials responded to Rauner's call in 2015 to form its own right to work zone. A federal judge ruled in January that only states have the authority to prohibit required union membership.
The override effort now moves to the House.
