While white locomotive firemen on the Georgia Railroad strike, Blacks who are hired as replacements are whipped and stoned—not by the union men, but by white citizens outraged that Blacks are being hired over Whites. The Engineers union threatens to stop work because their members are being affected by the violence - 1909

Below are the 2 amendments to the 2019 NDAA that Shea-porter put forward during markup on Wednesday. Both passed as part of a package of amendments agreed upon by both the majority and minority members of the personnel subcommittee prior to markup. So there was no debate during the markup hearing.
Even though Dan and I worked closely with Shea-Porter’s staff on the amendment language I am still nervous about the actual language of the amendments that is in the markup. Once the Full HASC report is published we will know more.
I will be working the Senate personnel subcommittee members staffs leading up to the SASC markup on the 23rd in an attempt to get the language into the SASC markup.
Although this language is now in the HASC markup it still must survive when the 2019 NDAA goes to the full House for debate, amendments and a final vote. I am sure allies of NGB in Congress may try and get these amendments stricken from the final bill. So our work is not done in the House yet either.
