12/17/07: A continuing resolution, funding critical government programs and services, without interruption, through Friday, Dec. 21, was approved by Congress and signed by the President Friday.
Congressional leaders plan to wrap the eleven outstanding funding bills into an omnibus package this week.
NTEU is optimistic that any fiscal 2008 omnibus bill will include a bipartisan-supported 3.5 percent pay increase. NTEU also is closely monitoring proposed legislation to ensure adequate agency funding.
Throughout the appropriations process, NTEU will keep you updated on our efforts.
