FUNDING MEASURE ALLOWS FOR PAY RAISE – December 10, 2014
Feds, Troops Still On Track for a 1 Percent Pay Raise in 2015
By Kellie Lunney, Government Executive
Federal employees will receive a 1% pay raise in 2015 if Congress approves an omnibus appropriations measure unveiled on Tuesday, December 9. The measure funds most of the federal government through September 2015. It funds the Department of Homeland Security through February 2015. While the current continuing resolution expires on December 11, Congress is expected to pass this funding measure and avert another government shutdown.
