Erich Wagner joins the podcast to discuss how the federal workforce made out in the appropriations plan.
The combination budget and coronavirus relief plan passed by Congress earlier this week contains provisions for funding the government through the end of fiscal 2021. If signed by President Trump, the bill would calm the shutdown threat for a year, giving federal employees relief before the end of the year.
Erich Wagner is a reporter at GovExec covering the federal workforce. He joined the podcast to talk about the pay and benefits provisions in the bill.
