HARTFORD CT. Today the House of Representatives passed on a critical bill (238-186) to stop the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) from destroying American jobs. The Protecting Jobs from Government Interference Act was introduced by Congressman Tim Scott (R-S.C.) in response to the NLRBs gross overreach attempting to move a Boeing production facility in South Carolina.
I applaud Congressman Tim Scott and the representatives who stood up against the NLRB, said AFP Vice President for Policy Phil Kerpen. Its really a sad state of affairs that in the United States we need legislation to remind bureaucrats they cannot make decisions about where businesses locate. This bill is critical to ensuring that the NLRB cannot interfere in important business decisions.
