Hare Celebrates Passage of Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act

Congressman Phil Hare (D-IL) today released the following statement after the House of Representatives gave final approval to the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, legislation that remedies a recent Supreme Court decision which made it tougher for women to recover damages for pay discrimination. The bill now heads to President Obama's desk.
