House to Consider Moran-Wolf Bipartisan Fed Employee Back Pay Bill


From Rep. Jim Moran's office: 

Washington, DC – The House will consider tomorrow Rep. Moran’s legislation, the “Federal Employee Retroactive Pay Fairness Act” (H.R. 3223), to ensure all federal employees receive retroactive pay for the duration of a federal government shutdown, regardless of furlough status. Moran is the bill’s author; Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) is the lead Republican cosponsor. 

The bill has received 168 cosponsors, including 32 Republicans. 

The Obama Administration released a Statement of Administration Policy (SAP) in support of legislation earlier today, noting “the Administration strongly supports House passage of H.R. 3223, the Federal Employee Retroactive Pay Fairness Act.  Once the Government is funded, the bill would retroactively compensate Federal employees furloughed as a result of any lapse in appropriations beginning on October 1, 2013, for the period of the lapse.  Federal workers keep the Nation safe and secure and provide vital services that support the economic security of American families.  The Administration appreciates that the Congress is acting promptly to move this bipartisan legislation and looks forward to the bill's swift passage.”

What:  Moran legislation to be considered by the full body of the House of Representatives       

When: 10:00 AM, Saturday, October 5, 2013

Where: Floor of the Capitol
