Roby votes against compromise


U.S. Rep. Martha Roby (R-Montgomery) voted against the debt ceiling compromise bill Monday night. The measure passed the House 269-161 in a roll call vote. “I was unable to support this legislation because, after a careful reading of the bill, I fear it could ultimately result in devastating and unjustified cuts to our national security,” Roby said in a prepared statement released by her office. “This bill, unlike previous proposals I supported, has a weak firewall against potentially destructive defense cuts. To be sure, there are savings to be found in the ...


Roby announces support for Speaker Boehner's debt plan


All eyes in Washington have been on the renegade Republican freshmen and whether they would back or buck their leader in the crisis negotiations to raise the debt ceiling. On Thursday morning, U.S. Rep. Martha Roby firmly placed herself in the category of backing House Speaker John Boehner's proposal to cut spending in exchange for raising the nation's debt limit, and avoiding a financial calamity. Roby, R-Montgomery, led a gang of more than 25 freshmen in a crowded press conference outside the U.S. Capitol to say that Boehner's plan, while not perfect, is better than nothing. "Some people ...


GOP's Martha Roby wants more domestic energy


Weekly remarks by President Obama, as provided by the White House Recently, there have been signs that the economy is picking up steam. Last month, we saw the strongest job growth in five years, and have added more than three-quarters of a million private sector jobs in just three months. But there are still too many Americans who are either looking for work, or struggling to pay the bills and make the mortgage. Paychecks aren’t getting any bigger, but the cost of everything from groceries to college tuition keeps on rising. Without a doubt, one of the biggest burdens over the last few ...

A Win for Working Parents
With Mother’s Day approaching, I’m excited to report that my legislation to offer Americans more choice and flexibility with their time in the workplace has passed the House of Representatives.   For the last three Congresses I have sponsored the Working Families Flexibility Act, which removes an outdated and unnecessary federal restriction on the use of compensatory time, or “comp time,” in the private sector.   Here’s how it works: an hourly wage employee would be able to voluntarily enter into an agreement with their employer to put a portion of their accrued overtime toward paid time off instead of extra cash. A working parent could use the “time and a half” overtime they've earned to take a paid hour and a half off work if that’s what they’d rather have.   If you work in the public sector, you’re probably familiar with this comp time system because it is a legal and widely used benefit for government employees. Due to a 1985 amendment to the Fair Labor
Roby’s Bill to Offer Parents Greater Workplace Flexibility Passes House
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Martha Roby’s (R-Ala.) bill to offer working Americans more choice and flexibility with time in the workplace passed the U.S. House of Representatives Tuesday.   H.R. 1180, the Working Families Flexibility Act, would give private sector employees the option to convert their accrued overtime into paid time off. This compensatory time, or “comp time,” would be completely voluntary for the employer and employee with strong worker protections to prohibit coercion. Comp time is already widely used by government employees.   Rep. Roby applauded this action by the House and said the bill would give today’s working parents greater time flexibility to balance the demands of work and family.   “The workforce has changed tremendously over the years, but the laws and policies that govern the workplace have not. Today’s working parents need more time flexibility to balance the demands of work and family,” Roby said. “I’ve always sa
Trump Administration Supports Roby Bill
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Trump Administration has issued a statement of support for U.S. Representative Martha Roby’s (R-Ala.) bill H.R. 1180, the Working Families Flexibility Act of 2017.   The bill will be voted on in the U.S. House of Representatives today.   “I’m pleased that the Trump Administration is supporting this commonsense bill to offer greater flexibility to working moms and dads,” Roby said. “After multiple veto threats from the Obama Administration, I appreciate the White House working with us to advance this bill.”   Per the statement released by the Executive Office of the President, if H.R. 1180 were presented to the President in its current form, his advisors would recommend that he sign the bill into law:   “H.R. 1180 would help American workers balance the competing demands of family and work by giving them flexibility to earn paid off-time they can later use for any reason, including family commitments like attending school appointments a
Roby: Appropriations Bill Delivers for Defense, Border Security
WASHINGTON, D.C. – A comprehensive appropriations bill passed by the United States House of Representatives today delivers prioritized funding for border security and national defense, including Alabama-based military installations.   H.R. 244, the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2017, funds government operations through the end of the fiscal year. The Senate is expected to take up and pass the bill later this week, and President Trump said he will sign it.   U.S. Representative Martha Roby (R-Ala.), who serves on the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, supported the bill’s passage and highlighted key funding provisions that impact military bases and programs in Alabama.   “This appropriations bill prioritizes national defense and border security, which are both critical for our country right now,” Roby said. “I’m pleased we could deliver much-needed funding for military programs impacting Alabama. This bill contains a strong budget for missions at Fort Rucker
