White House slams Tribal Labor Sovereignty Act ahead of vote


UPDATE: The House voted 249 to 177 on Tuesday afternoon to pass H.R.511, the Tribal Labor Sovereignty Act.

The Obama administration is opposing a bill that would exempt tribes and their enterprises from federal labor law.

H.R.511, the Tribal Labor Sovereignty Act, is due for a vote today. But President Barack Obama won't support the measure because the White House Office of Management and Budget said it doesn't offer enough protections to tribal employees, the majority of whom are non-Indians.
