Developing political momentum for the first time in several years, the Republican-sponsored Working Families Flexibility Act or comp time bill – which would permit private sector employers to pay premium overtime via compensatory time off rather than in cash if certain conditions are met – received another boost yesterday, with a House vote passing the bill along party lines. However, this show of support from Republicans is unlikely to have much purchase, as both the Democratically-controlled Senate and the White House have continually expressed opposition, with the White House indicating that even a passed bill would likely be subject to veto.
