Federal Employees News Digest : Oct 14, 2013
October 13, 2013 Vol. 63, No. 13 5 Visit us on the Internet at www.FederalDaily.com The White House and Moten alike reiterated the call for House members to pass no-strings-attached legislation to reopen the government and to raise the debt limit. Back pay Several days prior, during an Oct. 5 Saturday session, the House also unani- mously passed a bill that would provide retroactive pay to federal employees who have been furloughed as a result of the government shutdown. That bill passed 407-0. “Today’s legislation guarantees that retroactive pay for our federal employ- ees will not become a political bargain- ing chip,” said Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.), who introduced the “Federal Employee Retroactive Pay Fairness Act” (H.R. 3223). Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.) was the lead Republican co-sponsor of the bipartisan bill, and Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.) introduced companion legisla- tion (S. 1567) in the Senate. AFGE National President J. David Cox Sr. gave particular credit to the two Virginian lawmakers for pushing the legislation. “ These two congressmen are from opposing political parties, but they both agree that federal employees are not the cause of this shutdown and shouldn’t be punished by being deprived of their pay,” Cox said. “The fact that so many Republicans have signed on to this leg- islation shows that lawmakers can put aside their political ideology when it’s for the greater good. I hope this same spirit of bipartisanship will bring an end to this senseless and harmful govern- ment shutdown as soon as possible.” While the bill breezed through the House, the Senate appears in no hurry to take up the legislation. The gen- eral feeling there is that even if the bill cleared the Senate now, the govern- ment nonetheless remains shut down, and employees would not receive the retroactive pay until the government reopens.
