TIME: 1:15PM Eastern
CALL-IN NUMBER: (866) 393-5827

Also on the call will be AFP VP Policy Phil Kerpen, who wrote on NRO today:
With the odds stacked against Boeing and other employers, it’s up to Congress to step in. Fortunately, Congress is expected to vote as soon as this week on H.R. 2587, the Protecting Jobs from Government Interference Act. The bill, sponsored by Rep. Tim Scott (R., S.C.), would prevent the NLRB from ordering any employer to close, relocate, or transfer employment, protecting businesses from overreach by the agency.
Yes, it has actually come to this in America. We need legislation to confirm that employers can decide where to conduct business.
