House Democrats introduced legislation Monday to counter Federal overtime pay regulations put in place last August.

If passed, the legislation would give overtime back to Michigan workers who earn between $23,000 - $100,000 per year and do not supervise more than five people.

The Michigan Chamber of Commerce, which represents about 6,700 businesses in the state, feels the change isn't necessary.

House Democrats will now work to get their proposal, titled the Overtime Pay Protection Act, to committee.
