Congressman Mac Thornberry Supports "Protecting Jobs" Bill

 Texoma U.S. Congressman Mac Thornberry has voted in support of the "Protecting Jobs from Government Interference Act." The bill is in response of a complaint filed against Boeing by the NRLB last April. The complaint said Boeing opened a second production plant in South Carolina in retaliation towards unioners in Washington state.

The bill passed passed by a vote of 238 to 186, and is part of the House's push to repeal job-killing regulations. It is also meant to prohibit the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) from ordering a private employer to close, relocate or restore business operations.

Congressman had this to say about the bill and Government regulations:

"The NLRB's complaint has the potential to create an even more hostile business environment across the country.  It could prevent some businesses from relocating to or expanding in right-to-work states like South Carolina or Texas, or even cause others to shut down and lay off employees. That is hardly the kind of jobs plan  America needs as the economy continues to struggle."

"Using the government bureaucracy to push a political agenda is wrong.  We have a constitution that limits the power of government for a reason, and circumventing the will of Congress with this kind of regulation is unacceptable."

"This whole complaint is just another example of the kind of government over-reach and over-regulation that is causing uncertainty for small, medium, and large businesses alike, which has a negative impact on jobs and the economy.  This is America, and businesses ought to be able to operate their businesses however and wherever they choose within the limits of the law."
