Timeline: When to expect a possible pay raise, and other key fiscal deadlines
from Government Executive
In just the past few weeks, the government shut down, reopened and skirted a default on its debts. We could all do without that kind of excitement for a while. A while, in this case, is less than three months, roughly the amount of time left until the current continuing resolution funding agencies expires. Absent a grand budget bargain between Republicans and Democrats in December, the beginning of 2014 will put us right back where we were in September and October 2013. There's one bright spot for federal workers on the horizon: It's looking more likely that they will get an across-the-board pay hike in 2014, the first such increase in three years.
