Rep. Tom Price (R-GA) Introduces Amendment to Defund Union-Controlled NLRB
As the union-controlled National Labor Relations Board continues its job-killing push to unionize America’s workplace—including deciding whether to break-up and unionize company employees by classification—Republican Congressman Tom Price (GA) has introduced an amendment to completely defund the NLRB through the end of FY 2011.

The House continues its consideration of H.R. 1, the Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act for FY2011. This bill, if passed, will make appropriations for the continuing operation of the various federal government agencies through September 30, 2011. As reported by The Hill several hundred additional amendments have recently been introduced, which are taking up considerable time in the debate.
Among the amendments introduced is C.R. 578, introduced by Rep. Tom Price (R-GA), to defund the National Labor Relations Board, as follows:
At the end of the bill (before the short title), insert the following:
Sec. __. None of the funds made available by this Act may be used to pay the salaries and expenses of personnel to carry out and implement the National Labor Relations Act (29 U.S.C. 151 et seq.)
Given the current anti-business and anti-worker tenor of the NLRB, its declining caseload, as well as the blatant shilling the current NLRB is doing at the behest of union bosses, a defunding of this union-corrupted agency would be a welcome step to making it easier for America’s job creators to create jobs.
