Robert Hurt Statement On Congress' Action To Protect Citizens From Unconstitutional Action By The NLRB


Location: Unknown

Congressman Robert Hurt today released the following statement after voting in favor of the Preventing Greater Uncertainty in Labor-Management Relations Act, legislation to prevent the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) from future rulemaking based on a recent court decision invalidating the NLRB's rulemaking authority with the members appointments being ruled unconstitutional:

"With the question now answered on the constitutionality of President Obama's unprecedented National Labor Relations Board recess appointment scheme, the House of Representatives is committed to preventing further damage to our small business owners and workers by this unelected and unaccountable board. At a time when many 5th District Virginians are out of work, the last thing we need is an NLRB that burdens our small business owners and compromises the rights of our nation's workers when the legitimacy of those rules has been invalidated. As we await the President's new appointees to be approved through a lawful appointment process, I believe this legislation will ensure that our 5th District workers and small business owners are not negatively impacted by additional NLRB rulemaking."
