As you now know, the US House yesterday afternoon passed the American Health Care Act of 2017 that repeals and replaces Obamacare, but the major media outlets will provide you with all the details on that issue. Perhaps equally important to you, it also passed the Working Families Flexibility Act of 2017 (HB1180) by a vote of 229 – 197 and sent that measure on to the US Senate. HB.1180 gives employees the option of choosing to be paid overtime for that time worked beyond 40 hours in a pay period or taking “comp time” instead. The legislation, which effectively amends the Fair Labor Standards Act, is voluntary to both the employer (in that they can choose not to offer the comp time option and continue paying overtime) as well as the employee (who can choose to continue collecting overtime even if the employer decides to offer the comp time option. An identical measure is pending in the US Senate (S.801, filed by Senator Mike Lee of Utah), but it is still a question as to whether the bill would have enough support in the upper branch to overcome a filibuster by opponents.
