Amends the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 (FLSA) to provide that a State, local, or interstate governmental agency employee shall not be excluded from the definition of an employee employed in a bona fide executive, administrative, or professional capacity because such employee is not paid on a salary basis (thereby including such government employees under the exemption from minimum wage and overtime requirements of FLSA). Applies such amendment to such employees before, on, and after the enactment date of this Act, unless an action was brought in a court involving the application of specified FLSA provisions to the employee and a final judgment has been entered in such action on or before such enactment date.

House Republican Conference Summary

The summary below was written by the House Republican Conference, which is the caucus of Republicans in the House of Representatives.

No summary available.

House Democratic Caucus Summary

The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.

So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.

We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
