  • FMA HELPS DEFENSE BILL TO PRESIDENT'S DESK WHICH RESTORES DOD LONG-TERM PER DIEM RATES - August 3, 2018
  • Defense Bill Headed to Trump's Desk Restores Defense Long-Term Per Diem Rates
    By Erich Wagner, Government Executive

    The language to restore full per diems was included as part of the 2019 National Defense Authorization Act, which passed on an 87-10 vote. The bill now heads to Trump’s desk.

    In a statement, Federal Managers Association National President Renee Johnson applauded the repeal’s inclusion in the authorization act.

    “As I said last week when the House approved it, we are pleased the conference agreement prohibits the Department of Defense from implementing its policy of cutting long-term TDY per diems based on the duration of the assignment,” Johnson said. “This is a change that will immediately help thousands of feds.”
