(AP) House Republicans have scheduled a vote on legislation backed by some of the chamber's top Democrats to give federal workers furloughed in the ongoing partial shutdown their missed pay when the government reopens.


The vote could come as early as Friday or over the weekend.


The Federal Employee Retroactive Pay Fairness Act is sponsored by veteran Democrats Jim Moran of Virginia and Steny Hoyer of Maryland, as well as Republican Frank Wolf of Virginia. All are longtime supporters of the tens of thousands of federal workers living in their districts in the Washington suburbs.


On Wednesday, House GOP leader Eric Cantor did not directly respond when asked if furloughed workers would receive back pay.
