Back to work

By Mustang Bobby

From the Office of Management and Budget via TPM:
Federal employees furloughed as a result of the government shutdown should expect to return to work tomorrow morning, Office of Management and Budget director Sylvia Matthews Burwell announced in a statement on Wednseday night.

“Now that the bill has passed the United States Senate and the House of Representatives, the President plans to sign it tonight and employees should expect to return to work in the morning,” Burwell said in a statement moments after the House passed a deal to avert default and reopen the government. ”Employees should be checking the news and OPM’s website for further updates.”

For the employees who were furloughed, the bill passed by Congress includes back pay for the days missed.
