Possible House Vote To Instruct Conferees on Overtime Regs
by Michael Fox
Workplace Fairness is reporting on a possible vote tomorrow in the House of Representatives to instruct the House conferees to agree with the Senate's inclusion of an amendment prohibiting the Secretary of Labor from moving forward with the modernizing regulations to the white collar exemption regulations. The possibility exists because of the narrow defeat (3 votes) in the House when it was first considered. If it does pass, the only hope for the regulations would be a presidential veto, and even though that has been threatened, it seems highly unlikely given the heating up of the presidential race.
