The decision doesn't seem to be up on the court's site yet. The preliminary injunction that came before this decision is here: http://www.txed.uscourts.gov/sites/default/files/notable/Memorandum%20Opinion%20and%20Order%20.pdf

I get your point, but depending on the court's ruling, a Clinton administration may have actually tried to tighten up the wording to allow a new law to be passed. Pretty sure the current administration doesn't give a fuck. 

Also, yay for being a scumbag contractor. :D My contract house negotiated an OT rate well over 1.5.
