Mr. Speaker,

This bill is an assault on state rights stripping state legislatures of the ability to control labor. I motion for unanimous consent in opposition.

I yield

I’m going to ask the gentleman from New York or perhaps the parliamentarian for assistance. Can someone site for me the place for unanimous consent in opposition? If it’s there I’ll accept it. If not, I’m not going to recognize a motion that can’t be made.

Mr. Speaker,

I yield.

Mr. Speaker,

You love to talk about how inconsistent we are on states' rights, yet somehow this makes its way to the floor. Trying to blow up my state's labor laws. Unreal. 

I yield.

The gentleman from Texas will address this chair with the respect it has earned. There are plenty of bills that I don’t necessarily agree with all aspects of. every bill that has made it to this floor, did so because I wanted to give equal access to the floor. If the gentleman doesn’t like my decision to give equal access, he can vote his conscience and debate it out, or he can politely remove himself. Either way is fine with me. I picked bills because I wanted them debated. I don’t have to justify that decision to the gentleman from Texas. But next time he has a problem with the docket, he can approach me and ask.

Debate continues

Mr. Speaker,

This is nothing but an attempt to take away the rights of state legislatures to make their own labor laws. Not only is it a violation of states' rights, it will hurt the worker in the long run, and most definitely hurt business. There is nothing to gain from this bill and everything to lose.

I yield.

No such motion exists.....Therefore the motion cannot be entertained.

No need to get power hungry @Jsawrie. He properly addressed the chair and yielded. Nothing he did was unparliamentary.
