Hasner's ballot bill draws favor and backlash



The PR effort behind Rep. Adam Hasner's ballot bill released a poll claiming 86 percent support for a constitutional amendment guaranteeing secret ballots. More on the poll here.

“Floridians, including rank-and-file union members, strongly support the right to vote in private, free from coercion or intimidation,” Hasner said in a statement. “The right to a secret ballot is under attack, and worker’s rights must be protected.”

But unions were trying to makes waves, too, staging a rally outside the Capitol. Below: Broward school teacher Caryl Hatten.
