Rep. Roby Highlights Working Families Flexibility Act in GOP Weekly Address

On Saturday Rep. Martha Roby (R-AL) highlighted the Working Families Flexibility Act of 2013 (H.R. 1406) in the weekly Republican address. The commonsense proposal to give private-sector workers the option of receiving paid time off or ‘comp time’ for overtime hours worked was approved by the House of Representatives last week.
