Trump makes appointments to Federal Salary Council

After nearly a year of inaction, President Trump has finally announced his intent to appoint two people to the Federal Salary Council, Government Executive reports.

According to the report, Trump named veteran Republican staffer Katja Bullock and veteran federal personnel official Ron Sanders—who will serve as the chairman — to the council on Dec. 20, one week after former members questioned the administration's failure to make any appointments this year.

Former members have said that last year’s locality pay table will likely be used when it’s time finalizes a 2018 raise for federal civilian employees, since there is not enough time to go through the regulatory approval process, the article notes.
