Election 2018 Vermont Republicans Steer Clear of National Politics at Fundraiser

Election 2018 Vermont Republicans Steer Clear of National Politics at Fundraiser. Phil Scott, former governor Jim Douglas and New Hampshire Gov. Jokes about New Hampshire vs. Vermont were big: Why is Vermont's maple syrup sweeter? You have more tree-huggers, Sununu quipped. And that came during a half-hearted attempt at a joke about the three governors meeting in the basement of Trump Tower. Otherwise, the three speakers emphasized the importance of supporting local Republican candidates. They talked up a new party-building campaign called Unity 76, through which the GOP aims to claim a majority in the 150-member Vermont House. Sununu was the one speaker to talk about out-of-state GOP politicians. Sununu said of Maine's Republican governor, who's known for outlandish comments. Other Democratic challengers are expected.

Senate confirms second Trump nominee to labor board

. The Senate confirmed President Trump’s second pick to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) Monday evening, shifting the balance of power from Democrats to Republicans. The Senate voted 49-47 to confirm William Emanuel to the board charged with enforcing fair labor practices and workers’ collective bargaining rights. Emanuel, a corporate lawyer who works for Littler Mendelson in Los Angeles, is the second Trump nominee to be confirmed to the board after Marvin Kaplan's confirmation in August. With Emanuel, Republicans now hold the majority on the five-member board. They are hoping the newly aligned board will reverse the ruling that redefined what constitutes a joint-employer and made franchisors responsible for labor law violations committed by their franchisees, as well as a ruling that allowed unions to organize employees in so-called micro-unions. In a statement, Trey Kovacs, labor policy expert for the Competitive Enterprise Institute, said Emanuel "should prove" to be an "outstanding addition" to the board. “It’s essential that the NLRB start to undo the harm caused during the Obama administration, when the board put out numerous job-killing decisions and rules that weaken worker choice,” he said.
