COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina legislators aren't worried about a threatened federal lawsuit over a constitutional amendment that would guarantee workers a secret ballot vote in union elections.

The National Labor Relations Board last week threatened to sue South Carolina, Arizona, South Dakota and Utah over their constitutional amendments guaranteeing elections. Unions also want to be able to organize workers through signature drives.

Senate Majority Leader Harvey Peeler of Gaffney said the federal government should have more important things to tend to like protecting the nation's borders.

Peeler said the federal government will have a fight on its hands and he'll side with the 86 percent of South Carolinians who voted for the amendment.
