The Federal Pay and Benefits Proposals in Play for 2018
Another 2018 budget proposal from a group of conservative lawmakers has its eyes on federal employee pay and benefits.
The Republican Study Committee is the latest group to offer its take on the fiscal 2018 budget. About 150 House Republicans sit on the committee, including House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), House Budget Committee Chairman Diane Black (R-Tenn.) and others like Reps. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio).
The RSC proposal echoes the administration’s efforts to reduce the size of the federal workforce, which the committee said is “too big and too powerful.”
However, the RSC offers a few more specific suggestions. For example, it recommends the president and agencies work cooperatively with the House to identify federal positions that are no longer necessary and the appropriations bills where members could add Holman Rule provisions to eliminate or limit those positions.
