House Votes to Provide Fairness for Federal Workers
WASHINGTON, DC – House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) today applauded House passage of H.R. 3223, the Federal Employee Retroactive Pay Fairness Act:
“It’s encouraging to see both parties come together to provide fairness for the 800,000 federal workers hurt by this shutdown. Now we should do something about the 800,000 jobs being destroyed by the president’s health care law. That’s why Republicans are working every day to reopen the government and provide fairness for all.”
NOTE: This is the 8th bill the House has passed to keep critical parts of the government running in the face of President Obama and Senate Democrats’ refusal to negotiate. The full list is available at speaker.gov/senatemustact.
