Federal courts find money for another day's pay
The Administrative Office of the federal courts on Wednesday announced that it has enough money to pay court employees throughout the country through Friday, which is one more day than it previously announced.
Robert Barth, clerk of courts for the Western District of Pennsylvania, said that means that the court staff will receive a full paycheck for this week and last week. Beginning Monday, if Congress hasn't passed a spending bill, the courts will go into shut-down mode which means locally that court staff will still report to work but may not get paid.
The extra day's pay comes from fee collections and cuts in spending by the courts.
