Following the House's proposed budget, the NLRB released a statement warning that the bill's $50 million cut would require a three-month shut down of the agency (although, as we noted earlier, many members consider that a good thing). This attempt to warn of decreased efficiency mirrors a Democratic representative's warning that the cuts would threaten the Board's ability to resolve a possible NFL work stoppage. Apparently, the White House wasn't happy, as the NLRB has since taken the statement off of its website (subscription required).
