Revokes a rule requiring contractor accountability

This joint resolution nullifies the Obama administration's Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces executive order.

The set of rules required companies seeking large federal contracts to disclose wage, safety, and environmental violations for the prior three years.

It makes use of the Congressional Review Act, which allows Congress to revoke new rules issued by federal agencies.
