WASHINGTON, D.C. | October 29, 2013
House Education and the Workforce Committee Chairman John Kline (R-MN) released the following statement urging the Senate to reject the nomination of Richard Griffin as general counsel of the National Labor Relations Board:
The Senate should unanimously reject the nomination of Richard Griffin for general counsel of the National Labor Relations Board. For months Griffin performed the duties of a board member despite a federal appeals court ruling his appointment unconstitutional. His stunning disregard of the court’s decision added to the cloud of uncertainty that continues to hang over workers and job creators. No one with his track record should be allowed to serve as the agency’s top attorney. I urge my Senate colleagues to help restore the integrity of the NLRB by rejecting this misguided nomination.
