House Votes to Reverse Ledbetter

The House voted Tuesday to reverse the Supreme Court's Ledbetter decision limiting the time that workers have to sue their employers for pay discrimination. The House voted 225-199 to restart the statute of limitations for pay discrimination lawsuits each time an employee gets a paycheck affected by sexism or racism, repudiating a decision by the high court's five most conservative justices.

The Bush administration has threatened to veto the legislation.
