WorldatWork (Total Rewards Association)


Public Policy Legislative Tracker

The WorldatWork Legislative Tracker provides an outline of all the bills that have been introduced in the 113th Congress that will have an impact on total rewards. Each bill’s likelihood of being signed into law is categorized as either Red (Slim to no chance of making it out of its assigned Committee or out of its Congressional house of origin), Yellow(Slim to no chance of passing in both the House and Senate), or Green (Likely to be signed in to law). Bills classified as red but which are expected to be brought to a vote are marked with a double asterisk. 

As a benchmark, only 12% of Senate bills made it past committee and only 2% were enacted in the 112th Congress which spanned Jan. 1, 2011–December 31, 2012.  Only 11% of House bills made it past committee and only 2% were enacted in that same time period.
