Congressional Republicans are keeping the heat on the pay and benefits of federal employees. Just a week after the House GOP voted to freeze federal pay increases, other legislation is moving ahead, The Washington Post’s Federal Eye blog reported.

Next up is a bill that would force federal workers to pay 1.5 percent more toward their pensions. Also up for consideration are measures that would extend the pay freeze and cut the federal workforce by 5 percent through attrition, the Post reported.

Other measures deal with such things as how federal retirement benefits are calculated and step wage increases. Some of the provisions affecting federal workers are buried in much larger pieces of legislation dealing with the federal budget, the Post reported.
