Ahead of the vote, ABC National issued a key vote NO letter to the House in strong opposition of the PRO Act (H.R. 842). In addition, the ABC-led Coalition for a Democratic Workplace and 248 organizations sent a letter to Congress opposing the PRO Act.
The bill now goes to the U.S. Senate, where it is currently subject to a 60-vote threshold. 45 Democratic Senators have already pledged to support the PRO Act (S. 420). Only five moderate Democrats in the Senate have not yet signed on to support the bill: Mark Kelly (Ariz.), Angus King (Maine), Joe Manchin (W.Va.), Kyrsten Sinema (Ariz.), and Mark Warner (Va.). It is critical that members continue to contact their senators to urge their opposition to the bill.
The PRO Act is one of Democrats’ top priorities, and after maintaining their majority in the House and taking back control of the Senate and White House in November, this bill could become law.
On March 8, the Biden administration released a statement strongly encouraging the House to pass the PRO Act. President Biden has committed to signing the legislation into law if passed by Congress.
The PRO Act would enact harmful policy changes that would eliminate right-to-work protections in 27 states, violate employees’ privacy, upend the business community and devastate the economy.
Now more than ever, the nation needs resilient voices in Washington to stand up for worker protections, safeguard state right-to-work laws and reject harmful policies amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Support free enterprise, our nation’s small businesses and hardworking Americans. Tell your Senators and President Biden you say NO to the PRO Act today.
