Congress postpones decision on federal pay, passes government funding measure to avert shutdown

from NARFE

The decision about a federal pay raise for calendar year 2019 will be delayed until after the November midterm elections. The House-Senate conference committee negotiating a final, bicameral agreement on H.R. 6147 reached an impasse over provisions unrelated to the pay raise. The Senate version of the appropriations package includes a 1.9 percent pay raise for federal employees, while the House version is silent on the issue. With no agreement, the House and Senate simply passed a continuing resolution (CR) to extend funding at this year’s levels for the agencies covered by the bill until December 7, 2018, postponing the battle for a federal pay raise. As a reminder, the president’s proposed pay freeze will take effect if Congress fails to take action prior to the beginning of 2019. Please contact your representatives now and urge them to support a much-deserved federal pay raise. more
