Republican-controlled state Senate in the US State of Ohio has followed northern State of Wisconsin in passing a controversial legislation that restricts collective bargaining rights by public workers unions.
The Ohio bill was approved on Wednesday in a vote of 17 to 16, with six Republicans joining Democrats in opposing the measure.
"I've been saying for weeks that we have the votes to pass this bill. It reflects the diverse interests that our members have around the state of Ohio," CNN quoted Senate President Tom Niehaus as saying.'
