WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Congressman Russ Fulcher released the following statement in response to the PRO Act vote on the House floor scheduled for later today.
“Today the House will vote on a bill called ‘The Pro Act.’ I will be voting no, just as I did in the Education and Labor Committee.
If the Pro Act were to become law, it would mandate workers to pay union dues, subject personal information to organized labor institutions, and eliminate the right to a secret ballot.
The bill would overturn Idaho's longstanding ‘Right To Work’ law and replace it with federal labor mandates. It would also re-structure corporate franchise rules so drastically that franchises could cease to exist in Idaho.
In terms of potential impact on Idaho, ‘The Pro Act’ would be more appropriately deemed ‘The Con Act.’”
