Bill to allow injured workers doctor choice

The House Labor Committee has approved a measure giving employees authority to choose their own doctors if they are injured at work.

Republicans lacked the votes needed to block the measure, but they vowed to put up a fight in the House.

The measure should come up for House debate next week.

Democrats control the house, but there are signs that important labor-backed bills face a tough fight.
