House votes to extend pay freeze

Federal employees are one step closer to having their pay freeze extended. The House voted late on Feb. 1 to pass a bill that extends the current two-year freeze by one additional year, the Washington Post reported.

The bill, which passed 309 to 117, also freezes Congressional pay. The Senate still must pass the bill before President Barack Obama will have a chance to sign or veto it.
