Persuader Resolution Passes House Committee

On Wednesday, April 27, the House Education & the Workforce Committee held a markup on Representative Byrne’s resolution of disapproval of the Department of Labor’s final “persuader” regulations (H. J. Res. 87). The resolution would nullify the Department of Labor’s persuader rule, which was finalized on March 24, 2016.

The resolution passed the committee by a 22 to 13 vote. CDW commends the committee and Representative Byrne for acting on behalf of American workers and working to stop this unfair and burdensome rule.
