Federal

Update

By Andrew Architect, Andrew Bray,
Jim Fredericks & Jake Plevelich
**Disclaimer: The NPMA Federal Update was written May 9, 2016.

In no small way can NPMA thank the
hundreds of NPMA members who conducted meetings with their legislators to
urge the introduction of legislative action
to stop the drastic proposed overtime rule.
During the approximately 400 meetings with
Congressional representatives, the voice of
the pest management industry was heard
loud and clear, resulting in the first substantive legislative proposal that would block the
implementation of the proposed rule.
The NPMA's mission is protecting your
business and it will continue to advocate on

Anti-Overtime Legislation Introduced
In	March,	Senators	Tim	Scott	(R-SC)	and	
Lamar	Alexander	(R-TN)	and	Representatives	
Tim	Walberg	(R-MI)	and	John	Kline	(R-MN)	
introduced the Protecting Workplace
Advancement and Opportunity Act, which
requires	the	U.S.	Department	of	Labor	to	conduct a comprehensive economic analysis on
the impact of mandatory overtime expansion
to small businesses, nonprofits, and public
employers before issuing any final rule. The
final rule is anticipated to be released before
the end of May.

The Federal Government's Response
to Zika, NPMA Engagement
The Zika virus remains a priority topic
for the NPMA Executive branch and federal
law makers in anticipation of warmer temperatures	throughout	the	nation.	Recently,	
the	U.S.	Centers	for	Disease	Control	and	
Prevention	(CDC)	explained	how	mosquitoes that carry Zika have spread much faster
in	the	United	States;	the	virus	has	greater	
health impacts than previously thought.
CDC officials now believe mosquitoes carrying	the	virus	may	be	in	30	states	-	up	
from 12 states, as previously determined.
Experts from CDC have also linked the
virus to pregnancy complications beyond
microcephaly and that Zika may also be
associated with acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, a neurological condition that
affects the brain in a manner similar to
multiple sclerosis.
CDC officials again stressed the need for
additional funding to combat Zika, warning
that the nearly $600 million in Ebola funds
the Obama administration redirected to Zika
efforts last week would not be enough. The
White	House	has	asked	for	$1.9	billion	in	
new funding for Zika.
On	Capitol	Hill,	the	House	Appropriations	
Committee	Chairman	Hal	Rogers	stated	
that the Committee is rapidly working on
a supplemental bill to provide additional
funding to fight Zika but cautioned that the
committee is waiting on the administration
to provide more details regarding what it
