Congress approves back pay for workers affected by current shutdown, future ones

E-mail Print PDF
House of RepresentativesThe House on Friday cleared a bill that would ensure back pay for federal workers missing paychecks as a result of the partial government shutdown, as well as guarantee payment for employees affected by any future closures.
The measure passed with broad bipartisan support, 411-7. All seven votes against the bill came from Republicans.
"On the first day that some of our federal employees will miss their paycheck, Congress is saying and guaranteeing that workers will be paid not only for this shutdown, but God forbid if we have any future ones, that their pay will be guaranteed," Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Friday.
