The Biden administration plans to include a 4.6 percent raise for federal employees in the budget request for fiscal year 2023, Federal News Network reported Friday.
The Office of Management and Budget has told agencies to prepare for the potential pay raise in the recent passback budget guidance. The report noted that the potential pay raise would be the largest one in 15 years.
Shalanda Young, who is nominated for the role of OMB’s director, told the Senate Budget Committee on Tuesday that Congress will receive the budget request after the State of the Union Address.
President Biden is scheduled to deliver this year’s State of the Union Address on March 1st.
