WASHINGTON, D.C. – Recently, the U.S. Senate unanimously passed legislation co-sponsored by Senator Thom Tillis that would provide back pay for military officers whose promotions were delayed. The Military Personnel Confirmation Restoration Act of 2023 would also make an adjustment to the affected servicemembers’ time in grade and other administrative fixes. The bipartisan legislation has 52 co-sponsors and now heads to the House of Representatives.

“I am grateful for the Senate’s unanimous support to pass this crucial legislation to provide military officers and their families with the pay and benefits they deserve,” said Senator Tillis. “Our brave servicemembers defend our nation every day, and their pay and benefits should be immune from the partisan gridlock and political infighting in our nation’s capital. This legislation ensures delayed pay and benefits are fully restored to those who bravely serve our country.”
