Pay order is a possibility
Under federal pay law, the president has an annual opportunity with an Aug. 31, deadline, to make a federal pay raise recommendation that could become the default raise for the following January if Congress does not enact a specific figure. That would be an opportunity for President Obama to once again back the 1.4 percent January 2011 raise he recommended earlier this year.
