ALG Urges Passage of Bill Repealing NLRB Adjudicatory Powers in Light of Unconstitutional Appointments

Jan. 5, 2012, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government (ALG) President Bill Wilson today in the following statement urged the House to pass HR 2978 stripping the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) of its quasi-judicial powers in light of Barack Obama’s extraconstitutional installation of 3 new members to the Board:

“If the House wishes to prevent the NLRB from issuing rulings when it has been unconstitutionally filled with phony recess appointments, it needs to act immediately. Legislation by Rep. Austin Scott would strip the Board of all its judicial and rulemaking authority, making federal courts the sole arbiter of alleged infractions of labor law.

“Big labor advocates masquerading as bureaucrats should never have so much power in the first place to issue these anti-business rulings, and Rep. Scott’s legislation is the only bill that will do anything about it.

“While federal courts sort out the unconstitutionality of Obama’s lawless actions to fill the NLRB with union cronies, the House can act immediately to pass legislation that will defang the Board from issuing any more rulings on behalf of big labor.”
