GOP Leaders are praising a Supreme Court ruling today in a case which started in Yakima. The court ruled that President Obama exceeded his authority when he made recess appointments in 2012 to fill slots on the National Labor Relations Board that required Senate confirmation. The case was originally brought by Noel Canning in Yakima.

The opinion is a victory for Noel Canning. It affirms an appeals court decision that the NLRB ruling in favor of a new contract with the union was invalid. due to Obama’s recess appointments.

4th District Congressman Doc Hastings, R-Pasco, praised the court ruling,

 “The significance of the ruling is that it was unanimous, they said very specifically, that recess appointments are when Congress is in recess not over the weekend as what the president tried to do”




The president had argued that the Senate was on an extended holiday break and that the brief sessions it held every three days were a sham that was intended to prevent him from filling seats on the NLRB.

The justices rejected that argument Wednesday.
