WASHINGTON — The first bill that President Obama is expected to sign into law will make it easier for victims of pay discrimination to file lawsuits against employers.
The House on Tuesday voted 250 to 177 to give final legislative approval to the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, which reverses a U.S. Supreme Court decision and allows employees to sue as long as they file within 180 days of any paycheck deemed discriminatory. The Senate passed the legislation last week.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
