Congresswoman Barbara Comstock (R-VA) released the following statement after the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals granted an emergency injunction against the Labor Department’s overtime rule:

“The emergency injunction in this lawsuit sends a strong message to the Administration that it cannot rush rules like this that will hurt our workers and jobs.  We regularly talk with business owners and employees throughout the 10th District and they raise concerns about the misguided regulations this Administration has imposed without any input from Congress and that have unintended  consequences and cause uncertainty. Workers will now have more certainty in their jobs as they put in the work necessary to build a career, and, in many cases, companies of their own.”
