BATON ROUGE, LA – Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry issued the following statement after the U.S. District Court in Texas granted a preliminary injunction against the United States Department of Labor’s overtime rule:
“As I have often said, the Executive Branch cannot unilaterally make or change law; today, the court once again confirmed that. I applaud the court for ensuring proper balance between the branches of government and for halting this red-tape, job-killing bureaucratic edict. I was proud to stand with 20 other states in this fight for our businesses and employees, and I will continue to do all that I can to help employers hire and keep Louisiana workers.”
