The Biden administration is open to a bigger funding increase for the National Labor Relations Board than its own budget called for, if Congress deems it necessary, the president’s budget director told lawmakers Tuesday.

President Joe Biden’s fiscal 2023 budget requested $319.4 million for the agency, its first increase since its funding was frozen at $274.2 million in fiscal 2014. The administration could use a bigger increase, if Congress wants to provide more, White House Office of Management and Budget Director Shalanda Young told lawmakers on the House Budget Committee.
