ALG Praises House Passage of Bill to Rein in NLRB

Sept. 15, 2011, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson today praised House passage of a bill by Rep. Tim Scott (R-SC) that would prohibit the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) from forcing an employer to relocate, shut down or transfer employment under any circumstance:

“The House of Representatives took a good first step today in beginning to address the arrogant, political, overreaching behavior of the NLRB. While Rep. Tim Scott’s bill addresses a symptom of the agency’s history of political favoritism, Congress now needs to address this rogue agency in a more comprehensive manner that cuts to the heart of their misuse of power, abolishing the Board’s quasi-judicial powers allowing it to serve as prosecutor, judge and jury in favor of big labor in the first place.”
