CONTRACTOR BACK-PAY MISSES THE CUT IN FUNDING BILL
The issue of back-pay for contractors left high and dry by the 35-day partial government shutdown failed to make the cut in the Consolidated Appropriations Act legislation to be considered as soon as today by the House and Senate. The bill, which would fund government operations through Sept. 30 if approved by both legislative bodies and signed by President Trump, would avert another partial Federal government shutdown that could hit as soon as Feb. 15. Back pay to compensate private-sector contractors whose work was interrupted by the 35-day partial shutdown that began on Dec. 22 was reported to be a major sticking point in discussions by a House-Senate conference committee tasked with crafting compromise appropriations legislation to keep agencies running and to satisfy President Trump’s demand for border wall funding.
