Federal Employee Retroactive Pay Fairness Act

Wednesday, April 26th, 2017


A bill introduced by Representatives Don Byer (D-VA) and Rob Wittman (R-VA) to provide for the compensation of Federal employees furloughed during a Government shutdown. In a press release posted on Don Beyers website, “Shutting down the federal government threatens the livelihood of federal workers who carry out the nation’s vital missions,” said Rep. Beyer. “It’s inexcusable to play politics with their pay and the well-being of their households.” "Federal employees should not suffer because Congress refuses to end its govern by crisis mentality," Rep. Wittman said.
