WASHINGTON, D.C. | August 2, 2017
Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC), chairwoman of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce, and Rep. Tim Walberg (R-MI), chairman of the Subcommittee on Health, Employment, Labor, and Pensions, issued the following joint statement after the Senate confirmed Marvin Kaplan to fill one of two vacant seats on the National Labor Relations Board.
"America’s workers and job creators need a fully-functioning board that upholds our nation’s workplace laws in a fair and objective way. We are glad the Senate moved quickly on this timely confirmation, which will help move the board in a new direction. Hopefully, our Senate colleagues will act swiftly to fill the remaining vacancy so we can have a full slate of board members that puts workers — not special interests — first."
