Quote – Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT)

[The FMLA] is an unprecedented, inflexible, Government-mandated employee benefit that will strangle both individual and employer flexibility in addressing workplace needs….Government mandates…do not contribute to economic recovery and growth. Resources spent to comply with Federal mandates cannot be spent to create jobs. These mandatory costs on business are not good for the economy as a whole. Employers must be free of the same kind of rigidities that have plagued the economies of many nations in Europe.

Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) votes to sustain President George H.W. Bush’s veto against the FMLA. http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/F?r102:3:./temp/~r102PFqgEo:e21147:
