The Senate staffer and the various lobbyists we met all stressed the importance of continued education and discussion about the EFCA and its dangers, and continued vocal opposition by interested employers heading into the 2008 election cycle. “[This] issue will continue to be a problem and must not be taken lightly,” Sen. McConnell proclaimed. “[I]t has the ability to resurface after the 2008 elections should it be defeated.”
