Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson released the following statement on her vote against the Republican effort to shut down the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).

"Instead of focusing on job creation and efforts to strengthen on our economy, Republicans are supporting a bill that will gut the NLRB and prevent them from enforcing American labor laws," said Congresswoman Johnson.

Under the bill, H.R. 1120, the NLRB would not be permitted to issue any new decisions, enforce existing decisions, or advance any rulemaking in preventing and remedying unfair labor practices or defending the right of employees to join a union and bargain collectively with their employers.
