The House Armed Services Committee is set to take up the massive 2017 defense authorization bill on Wednesday, and when it does, there will be an amendment in the mix to make defense contractors immune to the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces Executive Order . That executive order requires contractors who have committed civil rights or labor violations to disclose that they’ve done so when they apply for new government contracts.

It’s unclear who authored the GOP amendment, which you can read here. But it’s expected to get a vote during the committee’s marathon hearing, which will run from Wednesday morning through early Thursday morning.'
