  Mr. HIGGINS of Louisiana changed his vote from ``aye'' to ``no.''
  Messrs. CLYBURN, COOK, Ms. FUDGE, Messrs. CARSON of Indiana, 
VISCLOSKY, and SMITH of New Jersey changed their vote from ``no'' to 
``aye.''
  So the amendment was agreed to.
  The result of the vote was announced as above recorded.
  The CHAIR. There being no further amendments under the rule, the 
Committee rises.
  Accordingly, the Committee rose; and the Speaker pro tempore (Mr. 
Cardenas) having assumed the chair, Mr. Sablan, Chair of the Committee 
of the Whole House on the state of the Union, reported that that 
Committee, having had under consideration the bill (H.R. 790) to 
provide for a pay increase in 2019 for certain civilian employees of 
the Federal Government, and for other purposes, and, pursuant to House 
Resolution 87, he reported the bill, as amended by that resolution, 
back to the House with sundry further amendments adopted in the 
Committee of the Whole.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. Under the rule, the previous question is 
ordered.
  Is a separate vote demanded on any further amendment reported from 
the Committee of the Whole? If not, the Chair will put them en gros.
  The amendments were agreed to.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The question is on the engrossment and third 
reading of the bill.
  The bill was ordered to be engrossed and read a third time, and was 
read the third time.


                           Motion to Recommit

  Mrs. BROOKS of Indiana. Mr. Speaker, I have a motion to recommit at 
the desk.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. Is the gentlewoman opposed to the bill?
  Mrs. BROOKS of Indiana. I am, Mr. Speaker, in its present form.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The Clerk will report the motion to 
recommit.
  The Clerk read as follows:

       Mrs. Brooks of Indiana moves to recommit the bill H.R. 790 
     to the Committee on Oversight and Reform with instructions to 
     report the same back to the House forthwith with the 
     following amendment:
       At the end of the bill, add the following:

     SEC. 3. PROHIBITION ON PAY ADJUSTMENT FOR EMPLOYEES 
                   DISCIPLINED FOR SEXUAL MISCONDUCT.

       During calendar year 2019, no increase in pay as authorized 
     under this Act may be provided to any Federal employee who 
     has been disciplined for sexual misconduct under chapter 75 
     of title 5, United States Code, or any other provision of 
     law.

  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The gentlewoman from Indiana is recognized 
for 5 minutes in support of her motion.
  Mrs. BROOKS of Indiana. Mr. Speaker, my motion to recommit amends the 
Democratic bill by prohibiting taxpayer dollars from being used to give 
raises to Federal employees who have been disciplined for sexual 
misconduct. Without this change, Federal employees who have engaged in 
sexual misconduct in the workplace would be rewarded for their bad 
actions.
  The Republican motion to recommit amends the bill and reports it back 
forthwith with an amendment. If it passes, the Republican motion to 
recommit will allow an immediate vote on final passage of the bill.
  The underlying premise of the Democratic bill is that our Federal 
civilian workforce should be treated the same as members of our armed 
services, who received a 2.6 percent pay raise in last year's NDAA.
  The Federal Government is blessed with amazing Federal employees. As 
a former United States attorney, I led an office of those amazing 
Federal employees. I worked with countless other dedicated Federal 
employees.
  Our dedicated civil servants work day in and day out to protect and 
serve the American public. We are most grateful for their service.
  The vast majority of Federal employees are hardworking. They don't 
engage in conduct unbefitting their civil

[[Page H1315]]

service. However, those who have been disciplined for sexual misconduct 
should not be rewarded with a 2.6 percent pay increase.
  The bill before the House today treats every Federal employee the 
same. Good, bad, competent, or not, they all get a pay raise on top of 
automatic step increases and promotions.
  Earlier today, my colleagues have asked: Doesn't everyone deserve a 
pay raise? The answer is no. A broken disciplinary process in our 
Federal agencies make it nearly impossible to fire anyone. This 
Democratic bill is nothing short of a handout to individuals who engage 
in sexual misconduct in the workplace, and that is wrong.
  How can we reward anyone who harms Federal employees in this manner? 
How can we reward people who abuse the public's trust in this way?
  Let me give you a few past examples.
  A 2018 PBS report included interviews with 34 current and former 
female U.S. Forest Service employees who alleged discrimination, 
harassment, and sexual assault at the agency. Do these employees who 
perpetrated this type of behavior deserve automatic raises? No.
  In 2017, an NBC affiliate identified almost 100 cases of Federal 
employees viewing pornography on government computers. Should these 
employees be rewarded for this behavior with automatic pay raises? No.
  In 2015, DOJ's Office of Inspector General found that DEA agents 
participated in sex parties in Colombia involving strippers and 
prostitutes paid for by drug cartels. Does this type of conduct warrant 
automatic pay raises? I don't think so.
  A recent study--and this is horrible--shows that sexual harassment is 
commonplace in Federal offices. One in five women have experienced 
harassment in the workplace, and nearly 9 percent of male employees 
report the same. It took 7 years for a former trial lawyer from the 
Justice Department to win a ruling from the EEOC confirming she was 
harassed by two male supervisors.
  In 2018, five ICE officials told The Washington Post the agency 
hadn't yet responded to sexual harassment claims they filed more than a 
year ago against a manager who they said pressured them to view nude 
photos.
  Our disciplinary process is confidential and murky. It varies agency 
by agency. We don't know how many employees have been disciplined for 
sexual misconduct and still remain on the job. We have serious faults 
we must address before we give across-the-board pay raises.
  During consideration of this bill in Rules, there was bipartisan 
sentiment to look at longstanding issues that face our civil servants. 
Retention, private-sector wage comparison, and millennial recruitment 
were some of those issues. But this was a hastily drafted bill, and 
this is not how the process should work.

                              {time}  1345

  The American people deserve a Federal workforce with high standards 
for appropriate conduct. Federal employees should feel safe and 
protected doing the people's business.
  Mr. Speaker, we have problems in our Federal workforce that we must 
deal with before we give across-the-board pay raises.
  The Republican motion to recommit protects due process rights of all 
Federal employees by ensuring that only those substantiated claims for 
which an employee has been disciplined will result in an employee being 
ineligible for a pay raise.
  It is inexcusable that the Democrat bill, as drafted, would treat 
victims of sexual harassment the same as the perpetrators who may still 
be drawing Federal paychecks. Taxpayer dollars should not be used to 
give a pay raise to these bad actors.
  I urge my colleagues to vote for this motion to recommit; and if it 
fails, I urge my colleagues to vote against this flawed bill.
  Mr. Speaker, I yield back the balance of my time.
  Mr. CONNOLLY. Mr. Speaker, I rise in strong opposition to the slander 
we have just heard.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The gentleman from Virginia is recognized 
for 5 minutes.
  Mr. CONNOLLY. Mr. Speaker, I have rarely heard such cynicism on the 
floor of the House of Representatives. Oh, no. My friends on the other 
side are right to kind of cabal because there is so much cynicism; but 
this one takes the cake.
  We are here to honor the Federal workforce, not slander them with 
insinuation.
  To listen to the gentlewoman from Indiana, one might infer that the 
Federal Government is riddled with people who are guilty of all kinds 
of nasty, near crimes and offenses, and should not be rewarded for it.
  I wonder if we would use the same standard ourselves here in the 
House of Representatives. How many in the last Congress, especially on 
a particular side of the aisle, have resigned over sexual harassment 
charges? And that wasn't insinuation, that was real. So let's not have 
a double standard.
  And by the way, I say to my friends, especially on this side of the 
aisle, let us not be distracted by what is really going on.
  We are simply trying, after the worst shutdown in American history, 
to say to our own employees, 2.1 million: ``You are valued. You are 
respected.''
  To actually vote for this is not only to say the opposite and deny 
them a simple cost of living increase that we have already given the 
military; it is, in fact, to say: By the way, we buy into this 
cynicism. We think you are riddled with guilt by association and 
insinuation.
  So we have an opportunity, in defeating this MTR, one of the most 
cynical I have ever heard, to actually make a positive statement to our 
Federal employees.
  Stand up and be heard. Say ``no'' to shutdowns. Say ``yes'' to our 
Federal employees, and restore their sense of respect with our dignity.
  Defeat this MTR.
  Mr. Speaker, I yield back the balance of my time.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. Without objection, the previous question is 
ordered on the motion to recommit.
  There was no objection.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The question is on the motion to recommit.
  The question was taken; and the Speaker pro tempore announced that 
the noes appeared to have it.
  Mrs. BROOKS of Indiana. Mr. Speaker, on that I demand the yeas and 
nays.
  The yeas and nays were ordered.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. Pursuant to clause 9 of rule XX, this 5-
minute vote on the motion to recommit will be followed by 5-minute 
votes on:
  Passage of the bill, if ordered;
  The motion to suspend the rules and agree to H. Res. 79; and
  Agreeing to the Speaker's approval of the Journal, if ordered.
  The vote was taken by electronic device, and there were--yeas 206, 
nays 216, not voting 10, as follows:

                             [Roll No. 63]
