TITLE DESCRIPTION HA POSITION
END THE EXPORT/IMPORT BANK The U.S. Export-Import Bank’s charter is scheduled to expire on June 30, 2015, at which point the taxpayer-backed bank will begin winding down its operations. Because there is no House vote scheduled before the bank’s expiration, Heritage Action will reward members publicly opposed to the bank’s reauthorization with a favorable key vote on the legislative scorecard.
THE FIRST AMENDMENT DEFENSE ACT The First Amendment Defense Act (H.R. 2802), introduced by Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID), would prevent the federal government from discriminating against any individual or group, whether nonprofit or for-profit, based on their beliefs that marriage is the union of a man and woman or that sexual relations are reserved for marriage. That protection would extend to tax policy, employment, licensing, accreditation, contracting and grants.

EMPLOYEE RIGHTS ACT (H.R. 3222) The Employee Rights Act (H.R. 3222), introduced by Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and House Budget Committee Chairman Tom Price (R-GA), would protect workers from union pressure by putting power in the hands of employees and making union leaders more accountable to their members. As the Heritage Foundation notes, if union bosses “were angels, such changes would be unnecessary” but “since they are not” new protections are necessary.
