    House Spending Package Boosts Agency Funding; Silent on Pay Raise

    The House last week passed a six-bill appropriations package which includes critical funding increases for many NTEU-represented agencies for fiscal year 2023.

    In approving the spending bill, the House remained silent on a federal employee pay raise, effectively deferring to the president’s proposed average 4.6 percent increase. NTEU continues to strongly advocate for an average 5.1 percent increase as called for in the FAIR Act.

    The bill would provide the Internal Revenue Service with more than $1 billion over the current funding level to improve and expand taxpayer services and strengthen taxpayer compliance.

    Other NTEU-represented agencies that would see funding boosts include the Bureau of Land Management, the Bureau of the Fiscal Service, Department of Energy, Environmental Protection Agency, Federal Communications Commission, National Park Service and Securities and Exchange Commission. The bill continues the ban on funding new outsourcing activities under Office of Management and Budget Circular A-76, which is important given renewed calls by some in Congress to outsource additional federal jobs.
