Trump informed House and Senate leaders in a letter sent Thursday.
Trump says in the letter that locality pay increases would cost $25 billion, on top of a 2.1 percent across-the-board increase for most civilian government employees.
He cites the costs and says: “We must maintain efforts to put our Nation on a fiscally sustainable course.”
