SEC. 2. PREMIUM PAY EXCEPTION IN 2016 FOR PROTECTIVE SERVICES.

    (a) Definition.--In this section, the term ``covered employee'' 
means any officer, employee, or agent employed by the United States 
Secret Service who performs protective services for an individual or 
event protected by the United States Secret Service during 2016.
    (b) Exception to the Limitation on Premium Pay for Protective 
Services.--
            (1) In general.--Notwithstanding any other provision of law, 
        during 2016, section 5547(a) of title 5, United States Code, 
        shall not apply to any covered employee to the extent that its 
        application would prevent a covered employee from receiving 
        premium pay, as provided under the amendment made by paragraph 
        (2).
            (2) Technical and conforming amendment.--Section 118 of the 
        Treasury and General Government Appropriations Act, 2001 (as 
        enacted into law by section 1(3) of Public Law 106-554; 114 
        Stat. 2763A-134) <<NOTE: 5 USC 5547 note.>>  is amended, in the 
        first sentence, by inserting ``or, if the employee qualifies for 
        an exception to such limitation under section 2(b)(1) of the 
        Overtime Pay for Protective Services Act of 2016, to the extent 
        that such aggregate amount would exceed the rate of basic pay 
        payable for a position at level II of the Executive Schedule 
        under section 5313 of title 5, United States Code'' after ``of 
        that limitation''.

    (c) Treatment of Additional Pay.--If subsection (b) results in the 
payment of additional premium pay to a covered employee of a type that 
is normally creditable as basic pay for retirement or any other purpose, 
that additional pay shall not--
            (1) be considered to be basic pay of the covered employee 
        for any purpose; or
            (2) be used in computing a lump-sum payment to the covered 
        employee for accumulated and accrued annual leave under section 
        5551 or section 5552 of title 5, United States Code.

[[Page 130 STAT. 1532]]

    (d) Aggregate Limit.--With respect to the application of section 
5307 of title 5, United States Code, the payment of any additional 
premium pay to a covered employee as a result of subsection (b) shall 
not be counted as part of the aggregate compensation of the covered 
employee.
