Action makes a difference. Last Friday, the House decided to temporarily pull H.R. 273, the Pay Freeze bill that would have extended the current pay freeze to the end of calendar year 2013. This week, the House will focus on a bill to raise the debt ceiling. We'll let you know if there are any issues in the bill to worry about.
We expect the House to bring the pay freeze issue up again, so stay ready to act when it does happen. Thank you for the outpouring of responses last week and all the phone calls you made; they did make a difference. We appreciate all that you do, and will keep you updated.
