On July 15, 2015, the Chairmen of the House committees of jurisdiction sent a letter to Labor Secretary Tom Perez and OFPP Administrator Anne Rung regarding the “Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces” Proposed Rule and Guidance.  Citing the myriad legal, procedural and substantive flaws in the EO and resulting Proposed Rule and Guidance (previously discussed here), the letter requests that the agencies withdraw the Proposed Rule and Guidance, or, at a minimum, extend the public comment period by an additional 90 days beyond the current August 11, 2015 deadline.  The letter, signed by 8 Committee and Subcommittee Chairmen, is available here.
