Ten states will fight 'card check'

In a conference call with reporters yesterday, former Oklahoma Rep. Ernest Istook said that his organization, Save Our Secret Ballot, has expanded to 10 the number of states aiming to enact constitutional amendments protecting workers against EFCA "card-check" legislation. As I report at The American Spectator:
Istook announced yesterday that the group has added five new target states -- Georgia, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota and North Dakota -- to its list, which already included Arizona, Arkansas, Missouri, Nevada and Utah.
SOS Ballot aims to take the issue to voters in the 2010 mid-term elections, asking approval for state constitutional amendments that would read: "The right of individuals to vote by secret ballot is fundamental. Where state or federal law requires elections for public office or public votes on initiatives or referenda, or designations or authorizations of employee representation, the right of individuals to vote by secret ballot shall be guaranteed."
Please read the rest. Istook has also written a column about the issue at Human Events.
