ABC sent a letter to the House of Representatives on July 9, 2015 in opposition of an amendment offered by Representative Keith Ellison (D-Minn) which would prevent federal contractors with Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) violations within the past five years from being awarded any federal contracts funded by the Department of the Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act (H.R. 2822).
