“Blacklisting Rule” is Voided


This week President Trump signed the Congressional Review Act, Resolution of Disapproval (H.J. Res 37) of the “Blacklisting Rule,” essentially voiding the rule and preventing it from resurfacing in future administrations. The rule would have placed extensive and burdensome new reporting requirements on federal contractors by requiring contractors to report any labor law “violation,” even if it was a mere allegation. The Senate and House both passed the resolution and now the rule is officially voided with the president’s signature. The National Association of Manufacturers issued a press statement praising the rollback of this unnecessary and burdensome rule.  3/28/2017
