NEWS | Mark Janus promotes bill to allow Kansas teachers, others to leave union at any time

The namesake of a landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision involving union fees says Kansas law should be changed to ensure the rights of public employees.

Mark Janus testified before a Senate panel Monday on legislation opposed by unions that represent teachers, police, firefighters, corrections officers and electrical workers.
