Cost Estimate

As ordered reported by the House Committee on Education and the Workforce
on April, 9, 2014

H.R. 4320 would amend the National Labor Relations Act to require the National Labor Relations Board to delay, for at least 14 days after a petition is filed, hearings on petitions by employees or employers for representation in collective bargaining. The bill also would set certain requirements for pre-election hearings. In addition, secret ballot elections could be held no earlier than 35 days after an election petition is filed. CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 4320 would not affect the federal budget.
