EFCA Reintroduced In Congress


The Employee Free Choice Act ("EFCA") was introduced March 10, 2009, in the 111th Congress by Rep. George Miller (D-Calif.) and Senator Tom Harkin (D Iowa). The bill has 223 cosponsors in the House of Representatives ("House") and 40 in the Senate. The bill's reintroduction came on the heels of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee's first hearing on EFCA the morning of March 10. Both sides have been lobbying passionately. For the reintroduction of the bill, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce brought roughly 150 executives from small businesses and Chambers of Commerce to Washington, D.C. Similarly, labor officials brought in roughly 300 workers.
