BPAPRA Passes the U.S. Senate and now goes to the U.S. House of Representatives

The National Border Patrol Council would like to thank Senators Tester and McCain for reaching across the aisle and sponsoring the bipartisan Border Patrol Agent Pay Reform Act.  The BPAPRA was combined with Cyber Security Authorization today and it passed the Senate and has now been sent to the House of Representatives for consideration.  We still have a lot of work to do as this is not yet a done deal.  But we are grateful for all of those elected Representatives that put in a lot of work into getting this through the Senate.  Along with Senators Tester and McCain, we would also like to recognize and thank Senators Cornyn, Heitkamp, Ayotte and Flake for co-sponsorsing this important legislation.
