Not to be outdone by the state attacks on public-sector unions, Rep. Price (R-Ga.) has offered the following amendment to the continuing resolution bill in the House (making appropriations for the rest of the fiscal year):
None of the funds made available by this Act may be used to pay the salaries and expenses of personnel to carry out and implement the National Labor Relations Act (29 U.S.C. 151 et seq.).
Perhaps some unions should start making noises about secondary activity against businesses in his district to remind him of unintended consequences.
UPDATE: the amendment was voted down by a 250-176 margin.
