House budget plan includes fed pay freeze extension

House Republicans unveiled a stopgap government funding measure Monday. The measure would extend the federal pay freeze and leave in place automatic sequestration cuts but would award the Defense and Veterans Affairs departments their detailed 2013 budgets while other agencies would be frozen at 2012 levels -- and then bear the across-the-board cuts. The current continuing resolution expires March 27.

Six-month CR makes extension of fed pay freeze official

The six-month stopgap spending bill unveiled by the House Appropriations Committee this week officially continues the federal pay freeze until at least March. The continuing resolution, which runs through March 27, gives lawmakers more time to make appropriations for the coming year and staves off the threat of a government shutdown. When a broad CR was first announced last month, the full Congress had not yet approved any fiscal 2013 spending bills. President Barack Obama proposed last month a 0.5 percent pay raise that would only take effect once Congress passed a 2013 budget a de facto extension of the current two-year freeze. The CR makes the extension official.

DHS may not have the funding to work together

Homeland Security is asking for $75 million to consolidate operations and cut the number of leases from 180 to no more than 10. House lawmakers say the DHS and GSA did better in explaining how the funding would be used and where the savings would come from, but members of Congress say tight budgets may force them to spend on operational issues instead.
