From the press shop of Rep. John Sullivan (R-OK) – “Yesterday, Congressman John Sullivan reintroduced H.R. 2558, the Government Neutrality in Contracting Act. In 2001, President Bush issued an Executive Order, reversing President Clinton’s previous policy of promoting union-only Project Labor Agreements (PLA) on federally-funded construction projects. H.R. 2558 will solidify the president’s Executive Order to end this discriminatory practice and promote competition within government contracts.” Let’s hope this legislation ends up being a real win for the free market!
