GOP Senators to NLRB, CFPB: Take Down the ‘Open for Business’ Sign
by Bridget Johnson:
A trio of Republican senators today introduced a bill to block NLRB actions in the wake of a D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that President Obama’s recess appointments to the labor authority were unconstitutional.
The Restoring the Constitutional Balance of Power Act of 2013 would prohibit the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) and Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) from enforcing or implementing decisions and regulations without a constitutionally confirmed board or director.
It would also block CFPB’s next transfer of funds from the Federal Reserve to carry out any actions that require the approval of a director.
