House Passes NLRB/Boeing Bill
Yesterday, the House dealt a very public blow to President Obama’s National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).
From CQ (sub. req’d):
The House passed legislation on Thursday to limit the authority of the National Labor Relations Board, kicking off the anti-regulatory agenda at the center of House Republicans’ fall jobs proposal.
The measure (HR 2587), passed 238-186, would prohibit the NLRB from ordering an employer to restore, shut down or relocate business operations. Seven Republicans crossed party lines to vote no, and eight Democrats voted for the bill.
As we’ve said before, the NLRB cannot be allowed to meddle in business decisions simply to favor their preferred type of worker. Jeopardizing 2,000 jobs in South Carolina is unacceptable.
Now, attention turns to the Senate and President. Stay tuned…
