House GOP Want To Continue Military Pay In Shutdown

House Republicans introduced a bill on Saturday to allow military pay to continue even if a government shutdown should occur, according to a report in Politico. 

The bill, sponsored by Rep. Mike Coffman (R-CO), would ensure that members of the military would be classified as essential employees. Earlier this week reports revealed that military pay could be halted should a shutdown last longer than two weeks. 

The House is expected to vote late Saturday night on a continuing resolution that delays Obamacare by one year, a measure that the Senate is expected to reject. The fiscal year ends at midnight on Monday.
