Congresswoman Barbara Comstock (R-VA) released the following statement regarding the possible elimination of the federal employee pay raise:

“I strongly oppose eliminating the pay raise for civilian federal employees and will work with my colleagues to have the pay raise included in our appropriations.   Our public servants have been getting shortchanged for years, including three years of pay freezes under the Obama administration.  Republicans recently made a strong statement in the House of Representatives supporting ICE and the work our dedicated homeland security officials do.  Dedicated work is also done by our civilian employees at other national security agencies, the FBI, DEA and other law enforcement agencies, as well as the National Institute of Health, where dedicated federal employees search for cures to diseases that drive up the costs of health care everyday.  We cannot balance the budget on the backs of our federal employees and I will work with my House and Senate colleagues to keep the pay increase in our appropriations measures that we vote on in September.”
