Faso votes for bill, with GOP, with no raises for federal workers

Jul 18, 2018 12:03 pm
On July 17, Rep. John Faso joined all but three of his Republican colleagues in the U.S. House voting 229-184 for H.R. 6147. The spending bill for, "the Department of the Interior, environment, and related agencies for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2019," does not take a position on pay raises for federal workers. That, Fedweek reports, allows annual raises proposed by the White House to take effect by default. Currently, the Trump administration is not advocating any raises for 2019, so federal paychecks would remain flat. Some Democrats are calling for a three percent federal wage increase, but observers predict the raise will be decided in negotiations between the House and Senate, and not until later this year.
