Press Release - Ranking Member Cole Hearing Remarks on H.R. 7 and H.R. 1195

Apr 13, 2021

As delivered during today’s House Rules Committee hearing on H.R. 7 and H.R. 1195:

Today’s hearing covers two bills coming out of the Education and Labor Committee. 

The first bill I’ll address, H.R. 7, is known as the Paycheck Fairness Act. Unfortunately, this bill is a very blunt instrument being used to address a complex issue. It is a bill written by trial lawyers, for the benefit of trial lawyers and will ultimately end up causing much bigger problems for employers and employees alike.
