President Trump Signs Into Law Repeal Of Obama-Era “Blacklisting Rule”

Washington, D.C. – Workforce Fairness Institute (WFI) spokesperson Heather Greenaway released the following statement today in response to President Donald Trump signing into law H.J. Res. 37, under the Congressional Review Act:

“With the stroke of the President’s pen, a punitive and unnecessary Obama-era rule that unfairly blacklisted some federal contractors from government bids was repealed.  The Workforce Fairness Institute applauds President Trump for eliminating this misguided regulation that undermined labor laws and punished job creators.  Since day one of his administration, President Trump has held firm on his commitment to unravel the growth-inhibiting, job-killing mandates of the past eight years – a refreshing change from the Obama Administration, which went out of its way to prop up Big Labor, and make it more difficult for workers and businesses to operate.  We thank President Trump for continuing to fulfill his campaign promises and appreciate him signing H.J. Res. 37 into law.”
