Did Bush break the law? Duh!

It appears based on this Congressional Research Report that Bush violated the 1976 National Emergencies Act in failing to follow proper procedures in suspending Davis-Bacon wage regulations. Dems at the Education and Workforce Committee are denouncing Bush for this illegal behavior.
Lafayette's congressman, Rep. Boustany, supports the President's action, saying that the elimination of Davis-Bacon will "ease the burden on state and local officials." We should note that Davis-Bacon does not apply to state or local officials, only to the Federal Government. Perhaps the media (ahem!) should ask for a clearification.
