The NAM released a statement of opposition to the rule this week, stressing that changes made do not alter the concerns raised by its members or make these regulations any more necessary to achieving a contractor base that complies with labor laws.  NAM said it would continue to pursue legislative language to stop implementation of this rule as well as pursue legal avenues available in coalition with other groups.  8/24/2016
