U.S. House of Representatives Passes Bill to Block Certain NLRB Actions Until Recess Appointments Issue is Resolved
On April 12, 2013, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 1120 which would require the National Labor Relations Board to cease all activity that requires a three-Member quorum until the legality of President Obama’s recess appointments to the NLRB is resolved by the courts or a proper quorum is obtained through Senate confirmation of the President’s nominees to the Board.
In all likelihood, the measure will not pass in the Democrat-controlled Senate.
