2018 Senate Budget Resolution

Legislation does not include any cuts to federal employee benefits

Last night, close to 500 amendments were offered before the Senate to their proposed budget resolution. Senator Rand Paul's proposals to cut federal employee benefits were defeated, the most severe of which lost by a vote of 94-4.

Representatives from both the House and the Senate must now meet to negotiate a unified version which would then go back for a vote before each body. Thankfully, it is clear that the Senate wants no part in cutting our pay and benefits.

As always, NBPC is closely monitoring all developments in Congress and continues to aggressively advocate for Border Patrol employees on Capitol Hill. We will provide additional updates as the situation in Washington, DC progresses.
