Legislators Introduce Bill to Delay Overtime Rule

Last week, House Republicans introduced the Regulatory Relief for Small Businesses, Schools, and Nonprofits Act (H.R. 6094) to delay the controversial overtime rule’s implementation by six months, until June 1, 2017.

Sponsored by Reps. Tim Walberg (Mich.) and John Kline (Minn.), this most recent approach for preventing the new overtime rule from taking effect on December 1 is a likely candidate for veto by President Obama, should it come to him for signature.
