NRA supports bills to cut red-tape burden for businesses

The National Restaurant Association applauded the U.S. House for passing the Workforce Democracy and Fairness Act Nov. 30.

The NRA had written to all House members urging their support for H.R. 3094. Among other provisions, the bill would override a proposal from the National Labor Relations Board governing the timetable for elections in union campaigns.

The NLRB had proposed speeding up the time between when a union petition is filed and the time employees vote on unionization to as short as 10 days.

"The restaurant industry is the nation’s second-largest private-sector employer, providing jobs to nearly one in every 10 workers," the NRA said in its letter to Congress. "With the right policies, America’s restaurants will be able to create even more jobs and provide greater opportunities to more Americans. But we must end anti-growth regulations like those coming from the National Labor Relations Board to do so."

The House voted 235 to 188 in favor of the bill. The measure faces an uncertain future in the Senate.

The NRA is also strongly supporting another bill to reduce the burden of regulations on businesses. The Regulatory Flexibility Improvements Act, which would change the way federal agencies measure the impact of their rules on small businesses, is set for a vote Dec. 1.
