2012 Defense bill amendment capping contractor pay advances

An amendment to the 2012 Defense Authorization Bill, passed by the Senate last week, caps taxpayer-funded compensation for all contracting employees at $400,000. Senate sponsors of the measure say the measure is designed to head off burgeoning defense contractor salaries. Federal employee unions have applauded the bill, but it has drawn the ire of industry groups. The Senate version of the defense bill, which contains controversial provisions dealing with military detainees, must still be reconciled with a House version before becoming law.

It's no secret Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney envisions broad changes to the federal government and its workforce.

But federal unions say Romney's comments and proposals should give feds pause.
