149

Guam – Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo  issued the following statement regarding an announcement that President Obama will propose a 0.5 percent pay increase for civilian Federal employees. The President is expected to include this pay increase in his budget proposal for fiscal year 2013, which he will submit to the Congress in February.


“Today’s announcement is encouraging news for many Federal workers whom have had a pay freeze during one of the most fiscally-challenging times in our nation’s history,” Congresswoman Bordallo said today. “This proposal, though modest, would help our Federal workers on Guam.  I look forward to reviewing the rest of the President’s budget proposal when it’s released in February.”
