Card Check Timing

I've recently caught some speculation in the news about when Congress may bring up the Employee Free Choice Act.  Right now it seems like Card Check is not atop the agenda.

The Las Vegas Sun reported last Tuesday that Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid said of Card Check, "We're going to get that, we're hoping to get to it sometime this summer." Click HERE to read the article.  Reid's comments were made at the official signing of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act.

Vice President Joe Biden has also indicated that movement on the EFCA is not imminent.  When asked about Card Check in an interview with CNBC last Thursday, said:

"...there's only so much on the plate these first couple months. Everyone understands - I think both of us thought 10 months ago that this would be a top-priority item in terms of immediate action. We know there's probably going to be some compromise here."
