Reservists Breathe Easier As House Covers Pay Gaps
As tensions rise for reserve members forced into involuntary mobilization the House of Representatives took a step forward to take off some of that financial pressure by closing the gap between civilian and military salaries.
The House’s bill would help those reservists involuntarily mobilized for 30 days or more whose civilian pay rate is more than their military pay rate.
It was created to address “family hardships caused by some reservists and National Guard members being deployed for the second or third time,” said Representative Robert Brady, D-Pa. Brady is the chief sponsor of the bill. He stated that service members that would be eligible for the financial compensation would be employed by the House of Representatives for at least 90 days. The House of Representatives would pay the extra money to fill the gaps, not the individual offices in which the employees work.
The bill was passed by a voice vote and now travels to the Senate, where, aides state, it has a good chance of passing.
