Senate protects overtime rules
The Senate, led by Democrats and six Republicans, voted to halt Bush's efforts to eliminate overtime for a large number of low-wage workers.
Zell Miller voted with Bush.
The House has already given its stamp of approval on Bush's proposal, meaning the House/Senate conference committee will somehow have to reconcile the issue.
The Republicans voting to protect the overtime rules were: Campbell (CO), Chaffee (RI), Murkowski (AK), Snowe (ME), Specter (PA), and Stevens (AK).Posted September 10, 2003 08:15 AM | Comments (97)
