Pay Our Coast Guard Parity Act of 2019

The appropriations are provided to the Coast Guard for

  • pay and allowances for members of the Coast Guard, civilian employees, and contractors;
  • the payment of a death gratuity, funeral travel, and the temporary continuation of the basic allowance for housing for dependents of members of the Coast Guard dying on active duty; and
  • retired pay.

The appropriations are provided until the enactment of specified Coast Guard appropriations legislation.

The bill compensates civilian Coast Guard employees furloughed as a result of a lapse in appropriations that began on or about December 22, 2018, and ended upon the enactment of this bill.

The bill also ratifies and approves certain obligations incurred in anticipation of the appropriations made and the authority granted by this bill.
