Barrasso Statement on Obama's Unconstitutional Recess Appointments

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

Today, U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) praised the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit ruling that President Obama's so-called "recess" appointments to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) were unconstitutional:

"The court made it clear today that President Obama's appointments to the National Labor Relations Board were unconstitutional. His power to use recess appointments is not unlimited -- and he can't disregard the U.S. Constitution's requirements on advice and consent of the Senate. Instead of going around Congress and the Constitution, it's time for the Obama Administration to work with us on nominations."

In September 2012, Senator Barrasso joined 41 other Republican Senators in filing an amicus brief in the case Noel Canning v. National Labor Relations Board. The case challenged the constitutionality of the National Labor Relations Board "recess" appointments made by President Obama.
