Earlier this week while deliberating the Labor-HHS-Education funding bill, the US House Committee on Rules advanced 58 different amendments, many of which significantly impact the Department of Labor and the National Labor Relations Board. The amendments, which were scheduled for debate on the House floor beginning yesterday, include funding reductions for the NLRB and restricting the implementation of the agency’s 2014 ambush election rule. Furthermore, other amendments prevent the Department of Labor (DOL) from requiring employers to submit injury and illness data electronically and prohibit the use of federal funds to enforce the Davis-Bacon Act (requires prevailing wage on federal construction projects) while also blocking enforcement of the Obama executive order encouraging federal agencies to require project labor agreements. There is still a ways to go before the legislation and funding issues are finally resolved, but the committee support sets a clear tone for further discussions.
