House Moves Against NLRB

The US House of Representatives will move legislation authored by South Carolina conservative lawmaker Tim Scott that would limit the National Labor Relations Board’s ability to punish companies who seek greater competitive advantage by moving to Right to Work states, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor announced.  The legislation is part of a broader agenda attempting to break “bureaucratic handcuffs” and repeal “job-destroying regulations” that are preventing American companies from creating jobs.

Scott’s bill would “take the commonsense step of preventing the NLRB from restricting where an employer can create jobs in the United States,” Cantor wrote. “By pursuing a steady repeal of job-destroying regulations, we can help lift the cloud of uncertainty hanging over small and large employers alike, empowering them to hire more workers.”
