AL.com: Trump administration endorses Martha Roby's family comp time bill
The Trump administration on Tuesday endorsed a bill by Rep. Martha Roby, R-Montgomery, that gives employees the option of using comp time instead of being paid overtime to help care for family members.
If Roby's Working Families Flexibility Act "were presented to the president in its current form, his advisors would recommend that he sign the bill into law," the Office of Management and Budget said.
The House passed the bill by a vote of 229-197.
"I'm pleased that the Trump Administration is supporting this commonsense bill to offer greater flexibility to working moms and dads," Roby said in a statement. "After multiple veto threats from the Obama Administration, I appreciate the White House working with us to advance this bill."
Roby first introduced the bill in 2013.
