Tom Temin, anchor of the Federal Drive on Federal News Radio, joins host Mark Amtower to discuss a wide range issues including the end of the fiscal year, and a possible SES exodus.

Will Congress pass a continuing resolution? Will Republicans try to block a 1 percent pay raise for feds? Federal News Radio tells you what to watch for as lawmakers return to Capitol Hill for a busy two weeks.
Members of Congress are returning to Capitol Hill with a full plate of issues to resolve, namely a Continuing Resolution to fend off a potential government shutdown. Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says they better hop to before they head out on the campaign trail.
When Congress comes back to work after Labor Day, it will have to figure out how to fund the government to start off fiscal year 2015. Most people think it will be a continuing resolution. But they may wind up needing more than the 12 days they have scheduled now. Jessica Klement is legislative director of the National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association. On In Depth with Francis Rose, she said getting a budget in place will take up a lot of Congress's time -- and may stretch that time to the limit.
Larry Allen, president of Allen Federal Business Partners and Cameron Leuthy, senior budget analyst at Bloomberg Government will discuss the end of fiscal year 2014 spending and what's ahead in 2015.

The Senate plans to mark up the 2015 defense appropriations bill on Thursday. That will probably help make it the first appropriations bill to pass the Senate for fiscal 2015. Meanwhile the House will try to pass its seventh appropriations bill. Congress as a whole needs to pass 12 spending bills by September 30th if it wants to avoid another continuing resolution or a full government shutdown. David Hawkings is Senior Editor of Roll Call. He shared Capitol Hill's progress on the bills on In Depth with guest host Jared Serbu.
Congress needs to pass twelve annual spending bills -- which set agency funding levels -- before the end of the fiscal year on September 30th. The House passed five of those bills so far. The Senate hasn't passed any. The appropriations process was supposed to be easier this year compared to last year. That's because lawmakers have already agreed on a bipartisan budget deal that sets topline spending figures for the next two years. Philip Joyce is a professor of public policy at the University of Maryland. In an interview with Web Writer Jack Moore, he said agencies should still plan for a continuing resolution.
The Sept. 30 deadline for Congress to deliver a complete fiscal 2015 budget plan is still about four months away. But with a lengthy summer recess spanning nearly the entire month of August, that leaves fewer than 40 working days for the appropriation committees on Capitol Hill to finalize agency spending levels. That has some budget watchers already raising the possibility of a stopgap continuing resolution to fund government operations.
Shunning the turmoil of recent budget clashes, Congress is ready to approve a massive $1.1 trillion spending bill for this year, a compromise financing everything from airports to war costs and brimming with victories and setbacks for both parties.
Army officials say the service is facing uncertainty times after weathering a series of continuing resolutions, sequestration and a partial government shutdown. Meanwhile, a new round of automatic budget cuts may be on the horizon if Congress doesn't pass a new budget come January.
