Subpoenas Issued in NLRBs actions against Boeing in South Carolina

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) issued a subpoena to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) and Acting General Counsel Lafe Solomon Sunday, August 7th, as part of its investigation into NLRB actions against the Boeing Company.

The NLRB recently challenged a decision by Boeing to locate a jetliner assembly operation in South Carolina, a Right to Work State, instead of at a union shop in Washington state. The subpoena was issued after the agency defied Chairman Issa’s requests for documents related to the Boeing case.

House-Compromise-Cong-Statewide-Map-1
State Senator Phil Shoopman briefed the Greenville County Republican Party Executive Committee on the new congressional district boundaries drawn by a senate committee on which Shoopman served. Lines must be redrawn after the census each 10 years, to equalize the population in each congressional district.

Due to population growth in the Palmetto State, the state will now have 7 congressmen instead of 6. Five of the six districts are now represented by Republicans.

The senator used the map of congressional districts and chart shown on Page 16 of this issue to illustrate his message.

Conway Belangia Answers Questions for Taxpayers

Conway-BelangiaConway Belangia, Director of Elections for Greenville County for the past 19 years, was a guest speaker at the July meeting of the Greenville County Taxpayers’ Association.

Belangia sees his primary mission to be insuring elections are fair. The hottest current topic is the new state law that requires voters to present a photo ID in addition to a registration card prior to being allowed to cast a ballot.

Republicans believe the requirement is necessary to ensure only people eligible to vote in a particular precinct are who they say they are. Democrats claim the law discriminates against the elderly and others who do not have a drivers license or a photo ID card issued by the Highway Department.
