Our Position:

We support this bill.
Dear Senator Enzi and Representative Gingrey,

On behalf of more than 1.9 million Americans for Prosperity activists in all 50 states, I applaud your introduction of S.J.Res. 36 and H.J.Res. 103 respectively, resolutions that will stop the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) from imposing onerous “ambush” union election rules.

Under the authority of the 1996 Congressional Review Act (CRA), Congress can disapprove of rules or regulations they deem inappropriate. By resolving that the rule “shall have no force or effect” the CRA effectively stops out-of-control regulators and halts implementation of rules that will be overly burdensome on American businesses or that Congress never intended.

The NLRB’s “ambush” elections rule promises to be an unnecessary burden for our country’s job creators.
