Rep. Tim Scott urged Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday to schedule a vote on a House bill that would prohibit the National Labor Relations Board from ordering any business to close or relocate.

Scott’s bill, called the Protecting Jobs from Government Interference Act, passed 238-186 in the House on Sept. 15. Eight Democrats joined 230 Republicans for the passage.

“The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has more than a dozen remedies if it finds that an employer has violated the NLRA (National Labor Relations Act),” Scott, R-S.C., wrote to Reid, a Democrat representing Nevada. “We do not believe these remedies should include the destruction of jobs, especially with national unemployment at 9.1 percent.”
