Take Action: Tell Congress to Repeal Blacklisting and Other Midnight Obama Regulations

Congress to Consider Repealing Blacklisting & OtherMidnight Obama Regulations This Week

Urge Your Members of Congress to Vote "Yes"

This week, Congress is considering the repeal of last minute Obama administration regulations, including the Blacklisting regulations. 

The Blacklisting regulations would require federal construction contracting officers to subjectively review prime and subcontractors’ state and federal labor law violations—including mere allegations of such violations.

If you want Congress to repeal the Blacklisting regulations and other midnight Obama administration regulations that are overburdening your construction business, contact them now.
