Senate Introduces Bill to Merge DOL, DOC, and SBA

On December 17, 2013, Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), along with co-sponsors Sen. Daniel Coats (R-IN) and Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK), introduced the “Department of Commerce and the Workforce Consolidation Act” (S. 1836). If passed, this bill would merge the Department of Labor (DOL), the Department of Commerce (DOC), and the Small Business Administration (SBA) into a new agency called the “Department of Commerce and the Workforce.” The mission of this new executive agency would be to spur economic growth and employment by promoting competition, protecting employees, and strengthening the United States’ position in the global marketplace. The bill was referred to the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.
