U.S. Judiciary: House Passes Consolidated Appropriations Bill; Bill Includes 2008 COLA for Judges

[Update 12/19/07: The Senate has also approved H.R. 2764. Click here for the roll call vote.]

The U.S. House of Representatives passed its consolidated appropriations bill (H.R. 2764). Included in the measure is a cost of living adjustment for Justices and Judges in 2008.

SEC. 305. Pursuant to section 140 of Public Law 97-92, and from funds appropriated in this Act, Justices and judges of the United States are authorized during fiscal
year 2008, to receive a salary adjustment in accordance with 28 U.S.C. 461.

There is no provision for a judicial base pay increase (there is no language from H.R.3753 or S.1638). [Note: See my previous post for more information on these bills.]
