H.J.Res. 42: Disapproving the rule submitted by the Department of Labor relating to drug testing of unemployment compensation applicants.

This was a vote to agree to H.J.Res. 42 in the House.

H.J.Res. 42 disapproves and nullifies the rule issued by the Department of Labor on August 1, 2016, defining the occupations eligible for drug testing of unemployment compensation applicants.

"Occupations” listed by the Department that may regularly require drug testing are only jobs that require carrying a firearm, aviation flight crews, air traffic controllers, commercial drivers, railroad crews, pipeline crew members, and commercial maritime crew members.

This list is considered too narrow and the rule generally considered too prescriptive and overly constraining of states.
