Support HR 4827, Federal Retroactive Pay Fairness Act, During the Government Shutdown

Dear Colleague:

We write concerning the current government shutdown and ask that you join us and more than 80 bipartisan members of Congress as cosponsors of the Federal Employee Retroactive Pay Fairness Act. This bipartisan proposal ensures that all federal employees receive
retroactive pay for the duration of the shutdown, regardless of furlough status.

During the shutdown, federal employees who are “excepted” are asked to work without pay until a funding agreement is reached. The remainder, some 800,000 or so, are furloughed without pay. In order to make these individuals whole again Congress must approve
retroactive payment through the legislative process.  Federal employees should be assured that there is agreement in Congress that they will receive their full pay in a fair and timely manner.

We hope you will join us as a cosponsor and give federal employees and their families some measure of confidence that they will receive pay for the time they worked or were furloughed during a government shutdown.

For more information or if you would like to cosponsor please contact Kenzie Landa at in Mr. Beyer’s office or Kathleen Gayle at with Mr. Wittman.
