Summary:
(This measure has not been amended since it was introduced. The summary of that version is repeated here.) This joint resolution nullifies the rule finalized by the Department of Defense, the General Services Administration, and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) on August 25, 2016, relating to revising the Federal Acquisition Regulation to implement Executive Order 13673 concerning contractor compliance with labor laws.
NAM Position:YES

Vote on H.J. Res 37, Disapproving the rule submitted by the Department of Defense, the General Services Administration, and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration relating to the Federal Acquisition Regulation introduced by Representative Virginia Foxx (R-NC).The NAM supported this CRA because the regulation, known as “blacklisting,” could bar federal contractors and subcontractors from doing business with the federal government if a company has violated, or has been alleged to have violated, a labor law. Manufacturers could be barred from contracting with the federal government for a simple mistake such as misclassifying an employee’s status.
