Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Trump Administration has issued a statement of support for U.S. Representative Martha Roby’s (R-Ala.) bill H.R. 1180, the Working Families Flexibility Act of 2017.
The bill will be voted on in the U.S. House of Representatives today.
“I’m pleased that the Trump Administration is supporting this commonsense bill to offer greater flexibility to working moms and dads,” Roby said. “After multiple veto threats from the Obama Administration, I appreciate the White House working with us to advance this bill.”
Per the statement released by the Executive Office of the President, if H.R. 1180 were presented to the President in its current form, his advisors would recommend that he sign the bill into law:
“H.R. 1180 would help American workers balance the competing demands of family and work by giving them flexibility to earn paid off-time they can later use for any reason, including family commitments like attending school appointments and caring for a sick child.”
