Legislators shelved a bill last month that would allow private-sector companies to offer compensatory time to employees in lieu of overtime pay, due in large part to intense protests from organized labor.
The bill, H.R. 1119, passed a House committee on a party-line vote. But Republican sponsors of the bill pulled it before a full House vote because it lacked the votes for passage. Democratic leaders say this means curtains for comp time reform in this congressional session. But Republican leaders said they still plan to revive the issue this year.
Similar comp-time bills passed the House twice in the '90s but never won Senate approval.
