Officials from 21 states sued the U.S. Department of Labor over a new rule that would make about 4 million higher-earning workers eligible for overtime pay, slamming the measure as inappropriate federal overreach.

A coalition of more than 50 business groups led by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce made similar allegations in their suit, which includes trade group plaintiffs from a host of sectors including manufacturing, construction, auto, franchising, retail, lodging and insurance. (Associated Press)
