The National Association of Professional Insurance Agents (PIA) supports passage of the Regulatory Relief for Small Businesses, Schools, and Nonprofits Act (H.R. 6094). This bill would provide a six-month delay in the implementation of the Department of Labor’s (DOL) overtime rule, currently scheduled to take effect on December 1, 2016. H.R. 6094 will establish the new effective date as June 1, 2017.

PIA reiterates our concern that the DOL rule raises the salary threshold below which most salaried workers are entitled overtime by at least 100 percent, which will have significant and negative repercussions for many of our member insurance agencies. PIA will continue to advocate for the DOL to reconsider this entire action, a process that will be aided by passage of H.R. 6094.
