POLITICO: Lawmakers push for retroactive pay for federal workers during any shutdown
As Congress stares down a possible government shutdown on April 28, two Virginia lawmakers are pushing their colleagues to guarantee retroactive pay for federal workers in case federal funding runs out.
Reps. Don Beyer, a Democrat, and Rob Wittman, a Republican, are drumming up support for draft legislation, obtained by POLITICO, that would mandate back pay for any federal employees furloughed during any shutdown "as soon as practical" after the government reopens.
Lawmakers face an April 28 deadline to pass a new government funding measure to stave off a shutdown.
In a letter seeking support for their proposal, Beyer and Wittman predicted upwards of 800,000 federal workers could be furloughed without pay. Congress, as it has in the past, would need to approve retroactive pay to compensate those employees.
"Preferably, Congress will reach an agreement to enact legislation to fully fund the government and allow our dedicated federal workforce to continue to carry out its critical mission," the lawmakers wrote. "In absence of such agreement and with time running dangerously short, federal employees should be assured that there is agreement in Congress that they will receive their full pay in a fair and timely manner."
Following the 2013 government shutdown, Congress also authorized retroactive pay for furloughed employees.

POLITICO: TRUMP READY TO GO BIG IN GOVERNMENT SPENDING FIGHT
But federal employees could be the ones who end up going home with the risky gambit, which could lead to a government shutdown next week. In a bid for some legislative wins in President Donald Trump's first 100 days, the White House is pushing to win money for a border wall, more immigration enforcement officers and a bigger military in the next government funding bill, according to administration and congressional sources familiar with the plan. Democrats uniformly oppose nearly all of Trump's spending proposals, which could force the shutdown next Friday, the day government funding expires and right before the 100th day of Trump's presidency.
"Congressional Republicans, desperately looking to avoid a shutdown scare, are eyeing a modest increase for border security — perhaps an increase in funding for surveillance technology — and a small uptick in military spending," report POLITICO's Josh Dawsey and Jake Sherman. "But two senior White House officials say they want a bigger win out of the fight, and an important deadline might help. People familiar with the negotiations say Mick Mulvaney, the budget director, and Marc Short, the White House legislative affairs director, are pushing congressional appropriators to include 'billions' for their agenda in private conversations. The White House, one person familiar with the conversations said, has pushed for $3 billion for the border wall, and discussions have been ongoing."
Thinking ahead: In the meantime, two Virginia lawmakers, Reps. Don Beyer, a Democrat, and Rob Wittman, a Republican, "are pushing their colleagues to guarantee retroactive pay for federal workers in case federal funding runs out" as Congress seems headed for a shutdown staredown, reports Pro Defense's Connor O'Brien.
