President Obama signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act this morning in the East Room of the White House. The Lilly Ledbetter Act act reverses the 2007 Supreme Court decision that limited the statute of limitations on filing pay discrimination law suits.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton attended the White House ceremony. Clinton was “one of the initial co-sponsors of the Senate legislation (later blocked by Republicans) that sought to change this decision and, in one of her few official acts before being confirmed as Secretary of State, signed on as an original co-sponsor again this year.”
