Washington, D.C. – Congressman Emmer (MN-06) released the following statement regarding the U.S. District Court in the Eastern District of Texas’s preliminary injunction of the Obama Administration’s overtime rule.
“Yesterday, a federal judge dealt yet another blow to the Obama Administration’s overreaching regulatory efforts. For the fourth time in less than two years, an executive action from President Obama has been halted by the courts, granting relief to business owners across the country. This injunction is a huge win for the hardworking men and women who face the very real threat of reduced workplace flexibility and fewer hours if implemented. I applaud this decision and look forward to rolling back more of the current Administration’s unilateral regulations under President Trump.”
