Senate Votes Against Pay Freeze Extension

By

The Senate on Tuesday narrowly rejected a Republican-led measure that would have extended a pay freeze for federal employees through January 2014 to help pay for tax credits, deductions, and energy projects. “The Republicans are coming forward with another attack on federal workers,” Sen. Benjamin L. Cardin (D-Md.) said in a discussion before the measure came to vote. [Washington Post]
