Overtime Regulations

The Labor Department is currently in the process of updating and simplifying complex overtime regulations. Yet Congress may pass legislation banning the Labor Department from finishing this important work.

The Administration strongly opposed this legislation, saying:

The Administration also understands that an amendment may be offered that would prohibit the Labor Department from implementing and enforcing the proposed rulemaking regarding changes to outdated overtime laws. The revised rule would provide overtime to 1.3 million additional low wage workers by simplifying complex eligibility tests and raising salary thresholds that have not been changed in almost 30 years. If either one of these provisions were included in the final version of the bill, the President’s senior advisors would recommend that he veto the bill.

On October 2, 2003 the House voted for a motion by Congressman David Obey (D-WI) to support the ban on the Labor Department’s work. The motion passed 221-203, with the support of 199 Democrats, 21 Republicans and one Independent.

Here are the Republicans In Name Only who voted against the efforts to modernize these complicated regulations:
