Bipartisan Senators' Letter to NLRB Opposes Destructive Proposed "Joint Employer Rule"

Many claim to prefer bipartisanship out of leaders in Washington, D.C., and right now we're witnessing an encouraging example of it.

Specifically, Senators Mike Braun (R - Indiana), Joe Manchin (D - West Virginia), Angus King (I - Maine), James Lankford (R - Oklahoma), Kyrsten Sinema (D - Arizona), and Susan Collins (R - Maine) have written National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) Chairman Lauren McFerran seeking reconsideration of the NLRB's proposed "Joint Employer Rule" that they correctly warn "would have negative effects on workers and businesses during a time that many are already struggling following the COVID-19 pandemic."

For years we at CFIF have sounded the alarm on the Joint Employer Rule that the Senators target, because it would dangerously reverse decades of established labor…[more]

CFIF Launches Ad Campaign Calling for Repeal of Tennessee’s “Certificate of Need” (CON) Laws Print

NASHVILLE, TN – This week, the Center for Individual Freedom (CFIF) launched a digital and radio advertising campaign calling for the repeal of Tennessee’s “Certificate of Need” (CON) laws. The ads, which are running in the Nashville and Knoxville media markets, highlight how CON laws give unelected government bureaucrats too much power over Tennesseans’ health care choices.

"Many Tennesseans understandably remain unfamiliar with the state’s CON laws, but the bureaucracy and red tape they impose on the free-market impact everyone," said CFIF President Jeffrey Mazzella. "Health care providers seeking to build new health care infrastructure or add new services and invest in local communities must navigate burdensome and unnecessary bureaucratic red tape, slowing down an already lengthy and costly process." 

“Many communities throughout the Volunteer State, especially rural communities, need access to care now,” added Timothy Lee, CFIF's Senior Vice President of Legal and Public Affairs. "Their health care choices shouldn’t be dictated by unelected government bureaucrats and entrenched interests."

Government bureaucrats failed Tennesseans during the COVID-19 pandemic. Their actions resulted in counterproductive policies like mask mandates, classroom closures and small business lockdowns. It’s time to restrict unelected bureaucrats’ power over health care in order to protect patient choice and access to quality care. CFIF urges all Tennesseans to contact their state representatives to make their voices heard to repeal the state’s archaic CON laws.

Founded in 1998, the Center for Individual Freedom is a non-profit, constitutional and free-market advocacy organization with more than 300,000 activists and supporters across the nation, including thousands in Tennessee.
