  • The U.S. Senate passed two amendments to Senator Tom Harkin's (D-Iowa) Jumpstart Our Business Strength bill late in the afternoon on May 4, 2004. These amendments are significant because one provides that an additional 55 professions will be non-exempt regardless of whether the new regulations ever take effect, while the other freezes overtime protections provided by the former regulations.
