The Democrat-controlled House has advanced a proposal for a 3.1% federal pay raise for 2020... matching the military pay raise.

Now, the White House has once again proposed a pay freeze, and the Republican-controlled Senate is not likely to be 100% in agreement with the House, but the process is getting started a little sooner this time around.

Will the GOP-led Senate be more generous in an election year?

Many months yet for this all to play out, but maybe the raise will be a little more generous than 2019's 1.9%

Like maybe 2.1%? You read it here first.

Thrilling. I'm only hoping we raise the debt ceiling without somebody thinking an effective bargaining strategy involves closing the government.

That was one of the main reasons I did not take a State Department Job earlier this year and leave my current organization that works off a Defense Capital Work Fund. It was a risk that I was not willing to take with the current climate. That is a good starting point for a pay raise. We will see how it plays out!

The House passed an appropriations bill with a 3.1% raise yesterday. Now it has to get through the Senate, which hasn't introduced any appropriations bills yet.
