Obama Civilian Pay Raise Proposal Due by Month’s End

BudgetPresident Obama has until the end of the month to decide on a salary increase for government employees, GovExec reported Tuesday.

Kellie Lunney writes that if the president does not submit a proposal to Congress by Aug. 31, pay hike will be determined under a provision of the Federal Employees Pay Comparability Act.

The administration’s budget plan for fiscal 2014 includes a 1-percent across-the-board raise, according to the report.

GovExec reports civilian personnel have been under a wage freeze for three years and House spending bills did not endorse salary increase for these workers.

By law, the president can order a federal wage hike if Congress fails to specify one or pass a measure prohibiting it, Lunney writes.
