The House has defied a White House veto threat and voted to overturn the Bush administration's new rules on which workers are subject to federal overtime guarantees.
Critics say the plan could deprive millions of workers of overtime pay.
The White House and most Republicans say the new rules update an antiquated overtime pay system -- and would make more than one million lower-paid workers eligible for overtime.
