MILWAUKEE - One day after a Wisconsin lawmaker promised to introduce right-to-work legislation, Gov. Scott Walker said the state Legislature should not take up the issue, calling it "a distraction." Rep. Chris Kapenga of Delafield, one of the most conservative members of the Assembly GOP caucus, said Tuesday he's convinced that right-to-work legislation, which would prohibit unions from forcing private-sector workers to join or pay dues as a condition of employment, is right for the state.
