Effort begins to guard pay before debt deadline
from Military Times
Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., is among the lawmakers seeking to reassure service members and their families that they won't miss out on a paycheck, even if the government faces a financial crisis this summer. In the wake of the announcement that the U.S. has reached its $14.3 trillion debt limit — and is now using extraordinary means to keep paying bills — Hunter is urging quick passage of HR 1551, a bipartisan measure to guarantee military pay. He is the chief sponsor.
