House and Senate Prepare to Undo Obama Contractor Rule

Leaders in both the House and Senate on Monday made good on past pledges and introduced a joint resolution to block former President Obama’s “Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces” rule that the Republicans call a “blacklisting” of legitimate federal contractors.

Obama’s 2014 executive order, intended to force contractors to disclose past accusations of violations of 14 labor laws, was blocked by a court in October, two months after his Labor Department finalized its implementation rules. Many in the contracting community oppose the rule.
