ABC sent a letter to members of the U.S. Senate June 6 in opposition to Sen. Richard Blumenthal's amendment to the FY 2017 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). The amendment would have repealed Section 829H of NDAA, which limits the Obama administration’s controversial “Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces” Executive Order 13673 to those companies that the government has suspended or debarred because of a federal labor law violation. If adopted, Amendment 4255 would subject federal contractors to an onerous new bureaucratic scheme that will negatively impact both industry and the Department of Defense. ABC will consider this a KEY VOTE on the 114th Congressional Scorecard.
