The DC Swamp Full Employment Act

Rep. Carlos Curbelo’s $800 billion carbon tax hike bill establishes a “National Climate Commission.” The authors of the bill wrote themselves in as beneficiaries: the Commission is authorized to “procure the services of experts and consultants.”

The Commission is authorized to pay the lovely “experts and consultants” up to $164,200 per year. 

Let’s go to the bill text:

CONSULTANT SERVICES. — The Commission is authorized to procure the services of experts and consultants in accordance with section 3109 of title 5, United States Code, but at rates for individuals not to exceed the daily equivalent of the annual rate of basic pay in effect for a position at level 4 of the Executive Schedule under section 5315 of title 5, United States Code.

So how much cash can each of these “experts and consultants” get from the Commission each year?

According to the Office of Personnel Management, level 4 of the Executive Schedule pays up to $164,200 per year.

The legions of left wing DC swamp-based “Experts and consultants” pushing for a carbon tax on the American people will be pleased to hear of their new revenue source.
