Border Patrol agents are willing to give up increased overtime pay in exchange for not being furloughed as part of the mandated federal spending cuts, the Washington Post reports.

“The reform I have just proposed saves tax dollars, reduces overtime pay and brings about financial certainty to both the Border Patrol agents and the agency alike,” National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd said at a hearing of the House Homeland Security Committee’s subcommittee on oversight and management efficiency.

The plan also calls for a base-pay increase.

The department would save the department $40 million in the first year, Judd said.
